Getting the ISO

We want to create a Bootable USB that has the installation DVD for CentOS 8 on it.

First, let’s download the CentOS 8 ISO.

Next, we want to go to

Next, we want to choose a location to download from that is physically close to where you are.

Click on the Mirror Icon on the line for your download.

This opens up a list of folders. We want the one called isos

Once in isos, we next want x86_64. If you have a really old computer that is only 32 bit, then we would need to go to a different Linux architecture.

Finally, one in x86_64.

CentOS-8.2.2004-x86_64-dvd1.iso                    08-Jun-2020 22:11      8G

Download the ISO

Click on the link for CentOS-8.2.2004-x86_64-dvd1.iso.
