I'm currently running Windows 7 x64 Professional and want to dual-boot with CentOS.

I made a disk partitioning and wrote an image of CentOS on flash drive. But when it is being booted there's no option to install linux - only

  • Boot,
  • Boot(textual mode),
  • Memory Test,
  • Network installation and
  • Boot from local drive (which is booting Windows).

I want to install linux, not to use livecd all the time, what's the problem?

This posting is a bit old, but apparently the LiveCD doesn't have an "install" option. You need to get the regular install iso.

but I've done it before with liveCD and what is the most interesting - I've done it with the same iso, with the same flash drive and with the same program – Sergey Sep 14 '11 at 14:34
I'm such a fool, this option was on the desktop - Install to hard drive – Sergey Sep 15 '11 at 1:10
