However somehow our working kickstarts have # Use network install url --url=http://10.0.0.1/repo/rhel/RHEL/8.2/x86_64/ repo --name=epel --baseurl=http://10.0.0.1/pub/epel/8/Everything/x86_64/ repo --name="BaseOS" --baseurl= http://10.0.0.1/repo/rhel/rhel8/x86_64/rhel-8-for-x86_64-baseos-rpms/ repo --name="AppStream" --baseurl= http://10.0.0.1/repo/rhel/rhel8/x86_64/rhel-8-for-x86_64-appstream-rpms/ repo --name="PowerTools" --baseurl= http://10.0.0.1/repo/rhel/rhel8/x86_64/codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms/ are you able to get to a console when this box is 'failing'? control-b 2 or something to move to a shell? if you can there might be a way to see if the cdrom is even mounted and in the directory listed. If it isn't //run/install/sources/mount-0000-cdrom then none of the repositories would work. I don't have any systems with cdroms anymore so I am not sure how to test to see myself. -- Stephen J Smoogen.
