In either case, you need to configure the computer to boot using the previous used method. Once the above requirements are met, the installation is unattended and does not require any other manual task. The idea of this installation method is that the installer perform all necessary tasks in automatically and unattended mode. When installation is complete, the computer will shutdown and you simply remove the medium used in the installation, either the DVD or pendrive.
The installation program requires no user interaction to create partitions. At this point, the installation program will stop showing an error message if partitions are detected in the first hard disk.
If everything is correct, after removing the medium used in the installation (DVD or USB pendrive), you can turn on the computer. By default, it will start with the default kernel.
If you do not touch any key, the system will boot automatically.
The system load can take between 30 seconds and 2 minutes depending on how fast is the machine where you run CentOS 7.
