Installing Fedora 16 on XenServer 6

Credit for this procedure goes to Major Hayden at Racker Hacker (http://rackerhacker.com/2012/02/11/installing-fedora-16-in-xenserver/). My procedure just uses an alternate, minimal kickstart file that gives you more control over the installation using the Anaconda GUI.

– Start an installation using the RedHat 6.0 64bit template
– In the installation wizard, use these advanced options: console=hvc0 serial ip=dhcp nogpt vnc ks=/”content/f16onxen6.ks
– Connect to the installer GUI using VNC and the IP shown in the console.

Proceed as normal! If you care to see the source of the kickstart: /”content/f16onxen6.ks
