I’m trying to install windows server 2012 R2 on a VM using virt-manager on centos 7. During the install it will not allow me to select the DVD drive (greyed out).
I tried the following command:
mount -r -t iso9660 /dev/sr0 /mnt/DVD/
The DVD mounted without error but there is only one file:
This disc contains a “UDF” file system and requires an operating system
that supports the ISO-13346 “UDF” file system specification.
So I tried the following command:
mount -r -t iso13346 /dev/sr0 /mnt/DVD/
got this error:
mount: unknown filesystem type ‘iso13346’
Could it be that the DVD drive I’m using is too old? It was manufactured in 2003…
Don’t specify a filesystem type; mount will figure it out (correctly).
And if you’re trying to install Windows in a virtual machine, you do not need to (and should not) mount the image at all. Simply provide the path to the ISO when setting up the VM in virt-manager.
