How to Manually Install/Reinstall an OS, Using SolusVM for Customized Installation?

The SolusVM Automatic Reinstall option does not allow you to modify or create a custom partition but you can manually install an OS by following these instructions:


1. Login to your SolusVM Control Panel.
2. If you have multiple VPS, select the appropriate one.



3. Scroll down, and under the "œsettings" tab, change the Boot Order to "œ(1) CDROM (2) Hard Disk".



4. Now click on the "œCDRom" tab and if the CD-ROM is already mounted, click on unmount and then select your operating system from list. Then click on "œMount".



5.
Reboot your VPS by clicking on "œReboot" and it will show a confirmation window. Then click on "œYes".



6.
Now quickly click on VNC without waiting.



7. The new VNC page will open. Click on "œJava VNC Client" or on the "œVNC" button.



8. It will prompt for confirmation. Click "œOk" or "œContinue" and it will show "œSecurity Warning". Accept it and click on "œrun".



9. Most operating systems will ask you to "œPress any button to start OS Installation" while booting. You need to press any key on your keyboard when asked and the OS Installation/Reinstallation will begin. It may also show you an option like "œInstall OS", "œTest this media". For OS Installation/Reinstallation you need to select "œInstall OS" and press the enter button.



Once the installation begins, it while set up the OS and ask you to create partitions, set root/admin passwords, etc.


After the installation is complete, don"t forget to set your VPS Boot Order to "œ(1) Hard Disk (2) CDROM", otherwise it will reboot your VPS and start in installation mode, instead of normal mode.
