Attempting to install CentOS 7 in Oracle VM VirtualBox virtual machine ( VM ).


Active Member
Attention: windowsForum members:
I have recently downloaded a CentOS 7 x86_64 ISO image file and burned it to a DVD. While following the instructions on this link, I arrive at the CentOS "INSTALLATION SUMMARY" page. It is supposed to appear as shown below ( note the "SOFTWARE" section below, circled in red ink, with the phrase "Local media" next to the DVD icon ):


However, the CentOS "INSTALLATION SUMMARY" page actually appears, as follows, on my computer system ( again, note the "SOFTWARE" section circled in red ink, with the statement "Error setting up base repository" next to a DVD icon with a warning symbol ):


At first thought, it might seem that there is a problem with my CentOS DVD, however, that DVD is readable, as shown below ( note the "DVD RW Drive ( I: ) CentOS 7 x86_64" drive circled in red ink, below ):


Why am I receiving the repository error while attempting to install CentOS 7 x86_64 in my Oracle VM VirtualBox CentOS 7 virtual machine ( VM )? Thank you ( see Colossians 3:15, for example ) for your help. Keep in touch.:)

Sincerely in Christ,
