I create USB with kickstart and it work

On the isolinux.cfg I add:

LABEL Appliance Installation IPAPPEND 2 KERNEL vmlinuz APPEND initrd=initrd.img inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Appliance7 ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg

But when I try to install it on Intel server type 5500 product S1200RP it hang on

"random: crng init done"

I change the isolinux.cfg ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg to ks=file:/ks.cfg

It is not hang but i get that says anconda missing ks.cfg

when I check the anaconda log is looking for the kickstart on directory /run/install but all the the kickstart is on mounted directory /run/install/repo

So i copy the kickstart to directory /run/install during the installation and it work

How I can fix it that will take the kickstart from /run/install/repo or any else action to make it run



According to this page: https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/7/html/installation_guide/chap-anaconda-boot-options inst.ks (and hopefully its deprecated ks equivalent as well) allows to specify device for the ks file (look at inst.repo details). So you hopefully can use inst.ks=hd:device:/path format and specify device by device name, LABEL= or UUID= and then use this partition's relative path
