Hi Saravana,

You can't burn this ISO onto a normal DVD - you would need a Dual-Layer-DVD ... just create a bootable USB medium instead. :)

Thanks Mr Labisch

I downloaded Fedora Live USB Creator for Windows, but somehow it did not work. Can you please suggest how can i create bootable USB in Windows and then copy the Linux ISO into it and install.

Regards, Saravana

Hi Saravana,

Alternatively you can use the Etcher tool, just download the Windows version.
It is extremely easy to use as you can see on the Etcher website. Good luck. :)

Thank you very much Mr Labisch,

I have created bootable USB using the tool suggested by you. During the installation of RHEL, the screen started blinking. However, installation completed. After welcome message the screen started blinking and wont stop.

Any idea?.

Hi Saravana,

Glad to read that my recommendation on how to create the bootable USB medium worked as
expected for you. The blinking screen ? That can be everything and without knowing anything
about your hardware, a recommendation is impossible. My first guessing would be, that it may
be related to the GPU (graphics adapter) - you need to provide details about your hardware ...

Oh, and by the way : you can call me Christian. :)

Hi Christian.

Thanks for your reply. Somehow screen blinking stopped. Hence, let me not ponder now about this. I have one more query i.e., after welcome screen, i get a "Set Up Enterprise Login" and cannot proceed further without login. i want to setup separate RHEL 8 server and try out some applications.

Please let me know how i can proceed.

Hi Saravana,

First you have to accept the T&C's ... then register the system and attach it to the subscription. :)

Hi Christian,

I have done as you said. I want to try it out Ansible.

Please let me know how can i proceed.

Hi Saravana,

Hey, that turns into something like an overall support case (HaHaHa). Okay, to install Ansible Engine execute the following commands (for Tower you would need a separate subscription).

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable ansible-2.8-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms
sudo subscription-manager repos --enable codeready-builder-for-rhel-8-x86_64-rpms

sudo dnf upgrade
sudo dnf install ansible

Cheers :)

Thanks Christian,

I am sorry for my greediness. I will not bother you much.

You're welcome, Saravana !

You don't bother me in any way - you seem to have misunderstood my joke. Feel free to ask anything you want, but please open new threads, when you have new questions. This makes
sure that other users can find (working) solutions for problems they are having ... one topic
should be covered in one post. Hope I could help you ... and you understand what I mean. :)

Hi Christian,

Thanks once again.

Hi Saravana,

It's me again ... just to make sure that you don't get me wrong, I explain what I meant in my reply
above. You started your thread with how to create a bootable medium to install the system, and
after my second response (Etcher) the problem was solved. The following questions you should
have asked in a new thread, one question for "blinking", another one for "how to install Ansible".

We are volunteers (not official Red Hat Support), and we are happy when we can help ... and we
want to help all users. So, if a user searches for a solution how to create a bootable medium, he

Hi

Please help me out ..I am trying to install RHEL 8 on Oracle Virtual Machine and i see two versions of ISO (DVD ISO and Boot ISO), which one is preferred and Why?

Hi Shiva,

You need the DVD ISO to install the system ... the Boot ISO cannot be used without the DVD ISO content being available on the network. Create a bootable medium from the DVD ISO, boot from it and start the installation. :)

Installed using DVD ISO..Thanks for your time on this!!!

You're welcome, Shiva ! I'm glad that I could help you. :)
