I am currently trying to install CentOS 6.5 (LiveDVD from bootable USB) on an HP Z4 G4 Workstation, however, due to a hardware compatibility issue, the text version is installed.
The GUI is required for this but due to company policy we cannot connect it to the internet, so I cannot use the
yum command to update or install any desktop packages.
I've tried disabling the nouveau driver after running into the following error:
conflicting fb hw usage nouveaufb vs EFI VGA - removing generic driver
but this did not work.
I'm not entirely sure what the issue is, however, I suspect it may be the video card.
When trying to install LiveDVD1 from bootable USB, I run into "
X startup failed, switching to text mode".
I've also had an issue with booting the LiveDVD version where the installation process hangs on "
waiting for hardware to initialize"
