I'm trying to switch my computer which is currently running the RC of Windows 7 to CentOS but am a little confused with the installation.
I'm running the installation and I've gotten to the point where it's asking me about partitions. up at the top I have the options:
Below that is an area that says:
Remove all partitions on selected drives and create default layout
Remove linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout
Use free space on selected drives and create default layout
Create custom layout
with a field area below that's blank. below that is a button that says: "advanced storage configuration"
Select the drive(s) to use for this installation
When I try to go to the next screen (regardless of which of the above options I choose) I get an error message saying
When I click the "advanced storage configuration" button, I get a dialog box that asks "how would you like to modify your drive configuration?" and the only option I can choose is "add iSCSI target" I click the "add drive" button and I get another dialog box saying
An error has occured - no valid devices were found on which to create new file systems. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem.
and field inputs for
To use iSCSI disks, you must provide the address of you iSCSI target and the iSCSI name you've configured for your host.
The iSCSI initiator name field is grayed out and something is written there. If I try to go to the next screen, I get an error message saying:
Target IP address
iSCSI initiator name
Reverse CHAP username
Reverse CHAP password
"IP address is missing". I tried typing 192.168.1.100 in the IP address field and got the following error message:
I have no idea what an iSCSI drive is and I'm not sure it's what I want. But it seems like the only thing I'm allowed to do and I can't even do that. I'm in way over my head and any assistance would be greatly appreciated
