I'm new to Raspberry Pi and Linux. I'm a university student and I'm a little stuck. I had the idea that if I formatted the SD card that come with the Raspberry Pi and put CentOS (that's the OS we use a university) on it I could then install centOS on the Pi.
This hasnt worked if I put the SD card in the Raspberry Pi and start it up I just get a lot of fails and no way of booting or entering commands (unless I'm not doing something right)
I downloaded the image from mirror.centos.org.
I created the SD card using a program called Rufus, as far as I'm aware it creates partitions and makes it bootable. When the Raspberry Pi starts up I get the rainbow screen and it runs but stops mid script with the last line:
[2.038041] ---[ end kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(179,3)
Unfortunately I'm not familiar with term 'instruction set architecture'.
