Mac Mini + Centos7

I recently had a need to install Linux on a 2014 Mac Mini. Naturally I chose Centos! 😄 I had some trouble finding a straightforward HOWTO to follow, so for the benefit of others wanting to do the same thing, here are the steps I took:

sudo dd if=CentOS-7-x86_64-Minimal-1708.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=8M

Something odd I noticed was that the onboard NIC did not show any link light when plugged in, however the network was connected (after I ran dhclient to get an IP).
