I'd like to know if it is and with it I would be able to do network install (e.g.: via FTP, HTTP) as I would with CentOS netinst ISO.
I have not tried CentOS netinst recently, but the OL boot image provides that options, plus it starts the system using the UEK kernel, which is useful if you need btrfs support, for instance.
thanks. I'll try doing network install
it seems installing from URL (http) from any mirror is not possible for lack or images/*.img files
