CentOS7 on ProxMox

Intent: create a VM with CentOS7 on a ProxMox appliance.

Get CentOS7 Distribution

Need to have CentOS7 ISO in storage local in ProxMox.

I downloaded to my laptop https://mirrors.edge.kernel.org/centos/7.8.2003/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-2003.iso and then uploaded it to ProxMox storage local.

Create a VM with CentOS7

Now you should be able to select the uploaded ISO when creating the VM.

I pretty much used the defaults. Except set cores to 2.

OS Intsallation

Start the VM. Do install. Reboot.
