Mount ISO KVM VPS
The First2Host network provides some great advanced features that allow users to perform complicated tasks from the client area but also from the VPS control panel. Automatically configure additional IPs or mount ISO files to your KVM VPS with ease from your client area. This guide details the process to mount an ISO image to your KVM NVMe VPS.
This guide assumes you are either using one of our ISO files or the support team have placed an ISO file in your account for use on the network. If you want to use your own ISO file just contact support who will evaluate the image and place it in your account for use. There is a one time fee of £25 for users using their own ISO.
Mount an ISO file to your KVM VPS
We’re going to use the client area VPS controls to mount the image to a KVM server but you can also use the VPS control panel at https://vps.first2host.co.uk. Log in to your client area and select the KVM VPS you want to mount the ISO file too.
Now in the left-hand menu options select the Management link. This is the area where you can manage most aspects of your VPS server right from your client area.
Mount .ISO KVM VPS
Next, select the ISO option. This will display a full list of ISO files that your account has access to. But if your ISO is missing please contact the support team for assistance.
Next, select your desired ISO file and click the mount button. This will mount the image to your server. Now, it’s time to change the boot options. As your server will most likely have an OS deployed to it already this step is very important.
So now, we need to tell the host to boot this server from the CD-ROM and not the hard drive. Change the boot options to 1. CD-ROM 2.HARD DISK.
Finally, click the Reboot link to reboot your server. A confirmation message telling you the server is being rebooted will be displayed. The final action is to use the NoVNC link to view your server’s console where you can then start working with your ISO.
Once you have completed your work and deployed your OS to your KVM server you can unmount the ISO and change the boot options back to 1. Hard Disk 2. CD-ROM. If you don’t change the boot order back to Hard Disk the server will continue to boot from the ISO file.
