you might want to try an automatic install with "à la jumpstart", as described 
in <>

you will have to make some adaptations, as the man page is written for 4.x and 
not 5.x (there is at least an issue with the nfsclient.ko kernel driver).

you can also keep the described procedure and at least install 4.8 (safer)


PS : do not forget to google a bit, as there are other interesting articles on 
the subject
