How to get a CentOS ISO - No install , preconfigured?

Just started playing around with virtualization (KVM), I was wondering how do providers create unattended / custom OS installs? Specifically for CentOS. Right now, when I create a VM, I mount the ISO and then run through the install steps manually. so cheap


  • They image the virtual server's virtual hard disk.

    wget && bash

    Depending on the platform, there are different ways to do it. There are also some generic ways like using a PXE server and kickstart files.
