I want to setup some brand new servers with RHEL 6.4. Servers do not have DVD, so, I have to use USB for the installation. I already have a custom ISO with a kickstart file that I use on servers with DVD flawlessly. I used iso2usb to move the ISO το my USB.
When I boot from the USB, the ks file is found, anaconda starts, but then stops with the following error:
"The installation source given by device ['sda1'] could not be found. Please check your parameters and try again"
- The USB IS the sda.
- My custom ISO file is renamed to linux.iso from iso2usb and it is present in the root directory of the USB.
- Kickstart file has the following entry:
- harddrive --partition=sda1 --dir=/
Please help me to automate the installation with kickstart.
Edit 1: This the anaconda.log file:
