Can't install Oracle Redhat 6.3, media not found on CDROM
Apr 23, 2013 4:16 AM
I've installed 6.3 on a Dell E521, although I remember I had
problems with APIC (?), and had to install using a special parameter.
Tonight I tried to install Oracle Redhat 6.3 on my server:
Asus motherboard with dual Xeon processors.
Although I've installed Redhat 5.5 on it, and Fedora, I
couldn't install 6.3.
Soon after selecting the language and keyboard, I got a message
that the install image could not be found on the CDROM.
Which is odd, because it had just booted from DVD and was running
the installation software.
Is there a way to install 6.3?
What is the secret?
Thanks a lot!

No, not odd. Different software parts look at different media areas using different technology.
Very likely this behavior was from a bad CDROM burn. Have you verified the media?
Maybe the O/S just doesn't like your CDROM drive. You can try doing a network-based install with the media on another host. Google is your friend.
