If you prefer to perform an installation using an ncurses menu rather than a full graphical installer, select the option "Text Install/Emergency Console" from the installer boot menu shown in Figure 3a. Once the installer finishes loading, you will see the screen shown in Figure 5.1a.

This initial menu provides the following options:

  • install: continues the installation using the text-based installer.
  • vesa: launches the graphical installer in VESA mode.
  • reboot: exits the installer and reboots the system.

Use the up/down arrows to make selections then press enter to continue with the selection. If you keep the default selection of "install", you will be prompted to install a desktop or a server in the screen shown in Figure 5.1b.

After making a selection and pressing enter, the next screen will display the available disks on the system. In the example shown in Figure 5.1c, one disk is available.

Select the disk to install into and press enter. In the next screen, the installer will display all available primary partitions. In the example shown in Figure 5.1d, their is only one primary partition on one disk and the installer has selected the default of installing to the entire disk. If you have multiple primary partitions and disks, carefully select the disk and partition to install to.
