I downloaded V33412-01Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 3 Boot iso image for x86_64 (64 bit)
Not very clearly - for me at least.
Not sure - and not sure where to find instructions on how to do this.
It mentions that you don't need the source CDs
Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 3 source DVD 1 V33413-01 3.1G
Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 3 source DVD 2 V33414-01 1.7G
Not sure what to do with these anyway.
To install Oracle Linux 6.3 from DVD media, follow the following steps:
1. Download the compressed binary DVD images
Download Oracle Linux 6.3 DVD from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud.
You do not need to download source DVDs to install Oracle Linux.
2. Verify the downloaded media
Verify the downloaded file by comparing its sha1sum or md5sum with the published
sha1sum or md5sum.
3. Write the DVD image to DVD
Use your favorite cd burning software to write these images directly to DVD.
You should not simply copy the files onto the DVD. You must use a DVD burner
that can accept an ISO image as input, and which can create a bootable DVD
from it. To test if you have burned the images correctly, insert a burned
DVD and ensure that multiple files and directories are visible.
6. Insert the DVD, and boot
Insert the DVD into your system, boot from DVD, and follow the on-screen instructions
to deploy Oracle Linux!
If your laptop has enough RAM I would rather install Oracle VirtualBox. You do not need to burn a DVD. A virtual machine can startup from an ISO file. Your Laptop hardware might not be compatible with Enterprise Linux and VirtualBox will eliminate such compatiblity issues. Also you don't have to jeopoardize your primary operating system that way. https://www.virtualbox.org/
Just out of curiosity 805445, did you ever get this installed? I've got an older laptop that I'm trying to load with this and am running into the same problem with the Boot disk. I just set it aside for a while but am just now starting to do some research to see how others have run into this issue and gotten past it.
You would think after 20+ years in technology, I'd be able to create a stupid bootable disk with an ISO. It usually ends up being one simple setting that cleans everything up and it then loads perfectly - its just a matter of finding out what that dang setting is.
