I wanted to know the steps to do a hard drive installation of RHEL using boot.iso as a minimal boot installation. Any website link with the screen-shots could also be of great help.
I hope my question is clear that what are the steps to do a hard drive installation of RHEL using boot.iso.
Please revert with the reply to my query.
Are you aware that the boot.iso does not contain the installation software that you require to perform a new installation of the OS?
The boot disk is not required to start up your computer. The standard installation DVD does as well.
The boot.iso will ask you where to get the 2nd part of the installation.
If you want pass the iso from the hardrive, you need somehow put the full dvd iso in there.
If we assume you have that already done, what you need to do, is make sure the iso is called dvd.iso or copy the content of the dvd to a path.
and pass the information to the installer as hard drive installer, then choose the hard drive and partition that have the iso or the installation media copied.
Let me know if this helps, if not, please take more time to explain what you want to do, and why you can't / wan't use the full dvd iso
Thanks for your answer. I know that boot.iso is just a starting point and DVD can do the required tasks. But, my query was how to take it forward from boot.iso towards installation, some screen-shots or a website link could be helpful.
if you write what you want to do, very clear I can write something for you with screenshots.
What I understand is.
You will burn the boot.iso dvd in a CD/DVD
will put that cd/dvd on a server/computer turn it on.
then, when the computer start, you will connect a hard drive that will have the Full copy of the DVD and you will like to do the install on the local hard drive using the boot cd+the linux media on the external dvd.
