Good Day everyone, hope you all well. Today I am going to install the latest CentOS 7 and I want to use it as a server. So, I choose CentOS 7 Minimal ISO which does not come with any Desktop environment. Only shell console available on this version. Since I want to use it as my server, no GUI is no problem at all.

Step 3. Select the installation language
Step 4. Review the installation summary
On this step, you will need to configure the installation destination.
Step 5. Configure disk partition
Click Installation Destination and it will open the disk partition option. We can use the automatic partition or manual. Press Done to continue.
Now, click Begin Installation to start the installation process. During installation, you will need to create a new user and specify the password for the root user.
Step 6. Reboot the system
Once the installation completed, reboot CentOS and enjoy.
