          Dude!

          The video cards in those systems is probably not supported and setting the video mode by the kernel ends up in a blank screen. You can try to add the "nomodeset" parameter, which instructs the kernel to not load video drivers and use BIOS modes instead. Also make sure you have your display attached to the first DVI port if it applies.

           

          If you do not know how to add "nomodeset" to the kernel parameter using the Grub boot menu, please try to search the forum for "nomodeset". There should be plenty of posts.

            01this work thk for your advice

             

            =============================

            Use this Linux Kernel to boot your server (2nd option on the menu)

            Oracle Linux Server (2.6.32-131.0.15.e16.x86_64)

             

            1 - Connect as "root" in Linux GUI (Gnome Desktop)

            2 - Open "Konsole" (terminal emulator)

            3 - cd /boot/grub

            4 - vi grub.conf

             

            On this file (grub.conf) make sure include "nomodeset”

            option on UEK (Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel) entry.

             

            This is how it’s going to looks like -- after -- the change:

             

            # grub.conf generated by anaconda

            #

            # Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file

            # NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that

            # all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.

            # root (hd0,0)

            # kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/mapper/vg_cal22-lv_root

            # initrd /initrd-[generic-]version.img

            #boot=/dev/sda

            default=0

            timeout=5

            splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

            hiddenmenu

            title Oracle Linux Server-uek (2.6.32-100.34.1.el6uek.i686)

            root (hd0,0)

            root (hd0,0)

            5 - Save this file <esc> wq!

             

            6 - Power-off your Linux server
