Once the installation begins, it will set up the OS and ask you to create partitions, set-root/admin passwords, etc.

After the installation is complete, don”t forget to set your VPS Boot Order to “(1) Hard Disk (2) CDROM“, otherwise it will reboot your VPS and start in installation mode, instead of normal mode.
