I have happily used a second Arch as a container booted with systemd-nspawn.

I would like now install a CentOS container, but I am not sure how to
proceed the install. What is the correct way ?
- first install minimal CentOS from an iso in a dedicated partition
(in my case it will be a ssd), then mount the ssd filesystem in
/var/lib/container/MyCentOS ?
- mount the iso file with systemd-nspawn --image=/path/to/CentOS.iso,
boot my container and then install CentOS .

Thank you for hint.
