As defined, the initial installation of the operating system requires the attendance of a system administrator in person: since it involves booting from external media and setting up the network equipment before which the server is offline. However, in some cases, it is possible to install the system remotely. For example, most modern hosting providers that provide the dedicated server service also provide access to the system installation interface. Usually, this interface is quite simple and does not require any special technical knowledge from the user. However, most often it is precisely at the stage of installing the operating system that users make critical errors, which cannot be fixed subsequently without a complete reinstall of the system. The most common errors during the initial installation are as follows:
- Wrong choice of the operating system distribution kit;
- Incorrect layout of disk space;
- Use of inappropriate device drivers;
Any of these errors can lead to unstable operation of the equipment or, in critical cases, to the event when your system will not be able to boot at all.
