I have an Nvidia GTX 960 and an Intel i7 CPU. I am trying to install Centos 7 from an USB drive. Originally I tried using a DVD but I kept getting an error about the linux kernel not being loaded. Now I am getting this...

enter image description here

It just hangs here.

  • How long did you wait? I came across a situation, where Centos 7 setup paused for some time as well and I also though, it crashed... Commented Sep 16, 2015 at 3:26

What method did you use to put the installation on the USB? According to centos wiki, you can't use unetbootin, but rather write the ISO directly to the USB(not the partition, but the device itself).

  • I was using unetbootin. I am now writing the image with dd. Hope that works.
