Problem

Last week while trying to create a Linux VM on a VMware ESX 6.5 server, I saw this;

Ne DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found

No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found

Solution

Normally the error indicates theres something wrong with the install media, so I deleted it and uploaded it again, same error. So I downloaded the setup iso file again and checked its checksum, to make sure it was OK, (it was, but the problem persisted).

To fix the problem I simply had to connect to the host, using a different browser, (I used Firefox). Upload the .iso file and start again. Once I did that, hey presto;

Install CentOS
