You could try BOMSI.

If your computer is powerful enough ( > i5, 8 Gb RAM) you can get it installed as easy as:

apt-get (or) yum -y install git
git clone
cd BOMSI/CentOS7-Kilo/
for NODE in controller compute1 network; do ./ -n=$NODE; done

The previous commands will create 3 VMs (qemu) with their virtual networks and install the core components exactly as in the official documentation for RHEL/Kilo and using BASH, so the installer should be very easy to understand.

If you use BOMSI for installing a virtual environment, it will create itself 3 virtual machines (controller, network and compute), so if you are running all this on a virtual machine, it might work, but it might be very slow. You can also uses the ISO BOMSI creates for installing in vmware...

Perform the following steps :-

  1. Install Minmal Centos (fresh install)
  2. try to ping google once you get the terminal(Just trying to check internet connectivity)
  3. run the following command ('yum update -y')
  4. Restart if there is the kernel got updated.
  5. run the following command ('sudo yum install -y
  6. Install packstack via command 'sudo yum install -y openstack-packstack'
  7. execute this 'packstack --allinone'

You are good to go. Openstack will get installed. My suggestion is use Centos 7. One more thing to note is there is high possibility you will get an error, Dont panic in that case just paste the error and we can solve it

I would suggest go for Minimal ISO as it has all the necessary things which are required. You dont need anything else, Packstack Will take care of the rest.
