    After Install i get black screen!!


    After install I reboot the server and centos dose its normal checking everything and giving a Green"OK" or Red"Error" and everything seems to be fine. I then get to a black screen with a X mouse cursor, i can move the cursor freely and i can turn the Num Lock key on and off and i can do a Ctrl+Alt+F5 and then reboot with a Ctrl+Alt+Del smoothly, but i just cant get the centos to boot up all the way into the GUI.

    Help me guys

    Hello,

    I'm just curious. Were you able to check your installation CD? I'm guessing you might have downloaded another version or something and not the Desktop edition.

    Hello and Welcome!

    When hitting Ctrl+Alt+F5, are you taken to a text based login screen?

    Did you check the md5sum of the .iso file?
