Cannot install Redhat 9 on D530


Cannot install Redhat 9 on D530

Dear, download the Redhat9 iso, and burn the CDs. Boot from CDROM. After select language, and start to install packetages. But, pop up "The RedHat linux CD was not found in any of your CDROM drivers and press OK to retry". Finally, cannot open CDROM and cannot install Redhat9 on D530. Anyone can provide tips to fix this problem. Thanks.

Boot into the BIOS and make sure the CD-ROM is detected but not configured like a hard disk.

Perhaps go back to defaults.

You may need to get a bootable cd from the server maker and configure the system prior to trying to boot red hat.

Re: Cannot install Redhat 9 on D530

hi kenlo,

did you also download the md5 checksums? and did you check the md5 checksums against the downloaded packages? about two years ago i had a similar problem and the i found out the download of the first disc was corrupt.

best regards,

How did you burn the iso image to a cd, hope you used the option to create a bootable cd from the iso image only then the cd will boot.
