The option of SolusVM Auto Reinstall doesn’t allow you to alter or create a custom partition but you can physically install an Operating System by following these subsequent directions:

1. Login to your SolusVM cPanel.
2. If you have multiple VPS, choose the appropriate 1.


3. Scroll down, and under the “settings” tab, change the Boot Order to “(1) CDROM (2) Hard Disk”.


4. Now click on the “CDRom” tab and if the CD-ROM is already mounted, click on unmount and then select your operating system from list. Then click on “Mount”.


5. Reboot your VPS by just clicking on “Reboot” and it will display a confirmation window. Then click on “Yes”.


6. Now quickly click on VNC without waiting.


7. The new VNC page will open. Click on “Java VNC Client” or on the “VNC” button.


8. It will prompt for confirmation. Click “Ok” or “Continue” and it will show “Security Warning”. Accept it and click on “run”.


9. Most operating systems will ask you to “Click any button to start OS Installation” while booting. You just need to press any key on your keyboard when asked and the OS Installation/Reinstallation will start. It may also display you an field like “Install OS”, “Test this media”. For OS Installation/Reinstallation you need to select “Install OS” and press the enter button.


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

After installation is completed, don”t forget to set your VPS Boot Order to “(a) Hard Disk (b) CDROM”, or else it will reboot your VPS and instead of normal mode it will start in installation mode.
