We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of
CentOS-7.0.1406 Minimal for x86_64 Architecture.

The minimal install iso media is an alternative install to the main
CentOS-7 distribution and comes with a trimmed down, preselected rpm
list. However, it still runs off the standard installer, with all the
regular features that one would expect from the main distribution,
except the rpm selection screen has been disabled. Running an install
from this media will not allow you to change the rpms selected for


SHA256SUMs :


The ISO file is avilable at :


Since the size for these files is relatively small, no torrent files are
being released.


We have tried to test this install for most deployment roles, including
VMs and physical machines. And with lvm, mdraid, iscsi and dm-multipath

These images also contain the complete recovery and rescue environment
found in the main distribution.

You should be able to use these images from CD media, DVD media, USB
storage devices.

We do not recommend these images be used with kickstart files written
for the main CentOS distro images.

An install will setup yum to work with the regular default CentOS 7
repositories. Once the installed machine instace boots it should work
just like a regular CentOS machine, with only the bare minimal rpms
installed. All package management, networking and storage related
functionality should already be in place.


There is no upstream Minimal media product.

These ISOs only contains content found within the primary CentOS-7.0.1406
distribution. No package from outside the distribution was included and
no package has been changed from whats included in the base distribution.

We appreciate all forms of feedback about these images, including
specific application inclusion requests or feature changes in future
releases. The best place to provide this feedback is via the
centos-devel mailing list ( http://lists.centos.org/ ) and feature
requests via the issue tracker ( http://bugs.centos.org/ ).
