I tried posting on the Oracle VM forum but noone replied. Trying here.
Anyone have any ideas?
Just installed VirtualBox 4.2 on my 64bit laptop
I then created a new Virtual Machine with a 60Gbyte harddrive
I then used the Settings to assign the OEL 6 .iso file to the Virtual Machine's CD/DVD
I then click the Start button
I get the startup screens for OEL6 so I know the CD/DVD is seen by the Virtual Machine
I click Install or Upgrade existing system
A bunch of stuff is uncompressed as I'm used to seeing
Eventually I get the Test Media screen, I use the Skip button (the first time I tried this, I did verify the .iso so I know it's good)
I click through the Language and Keyboard setting screens
Then I get the Installation Method screen. I click Local CD/DVD as I assume the .iso is in the Virtual Machine's virtual CD/DVD
When I click the OK button, I get the message The Oracle Linux Server disk was not found in any of our CDROM drives.
I'm perplexed. Any help is appreciated.
Are you using the Boot CD to install the software? It will prompt for the installation media because it does not contain the installation packages. I suggest to check what you are using. To boot and install the system from one and the same DVD you need the standard 6.3 Installation DVD or iso image (V33411-01). When you test the CD/DVD media it will be ejected and you need to restart.
OK thanks I'll try that. I was installing from just the .iso V33412-01. I'll try this with V33411-01
I'll update with my status after I get it downloaded and attempt the installation.
Thank you for your help
