I've seen such problem with MS Windows installs but the issue is perhaps similar. After the keyboard and language selection, the system may loose connection to your mouse and keyboard, hence appear to be frozen. If I remember correctly, it's because older system installs do not ship with a USB 3 driver.
There are a few things you could try, for example:
- verify the PC BIOS to make sure legacy USB is enabled (USB 2/1.1)
- switch to a USB 2 port - depends on your motherboard.
- try kernel parameters, such as iommu=soft or amd_iommu=on
If you need more help, please provide more info about your hardware. I don't have a crystal ball.
Thanks for replying. Sorry took long time to reply back. Here are the updates:
1. I have verify the PC BIOS and make sure that legacy USB was enabled.
2. What do you mean by switch to a USB 2 port? I'm using internal DVD ROM to install
3. Tried to use kernel parameters iommu=soft or amd_iommu=on also still failed
I'm using a Lenovo Ideacentre 300-20ISH with Intel Xeon E3-1200 and 8 GB RAM for the installation. Thanks.

Probably the following applies, which pretty much boils down to what I previously mentioned:
The problem seems to be the lack of support for your chipset, although the CPU should be supported starting with 5.6 according to https://access.redhat.com/support/policy/intel What are you using exactly? Anyway, you may have more luck installing Oracle Linux 6 (6.8) or 7.
I tried to burn another disk and do the installation but this time it didn't even let me go till the language selection. It just shown first page of installation then when I press enter my PC reboot itself and return back to the first page of installation.
What do you mean by : What are you using exactly?
Actually I had installed Oracle Linux 7 and the installation seems ok though when the system started I saw some errors but I can use the computer. I want to use this computer to install Oracle e-Business Suite 126.96.36.199.0. However Oracle Linux 7 only install unzip 6 while the installation of Oracle e-Business Suite must use unzip 5. I have tried to remove unzip 6 and install unzip 5 but if I follow their pre-installed rpm, it will upgrade unzip 5 to unzip 6 again. That's why I'm thinking to test OL 5 instead.
What did you try to install exactly, e.g. OL 5.5, 5.11?
Regarding unzip, check https://www.oracle.com/webfolder/community/oracle_e-business_suite/3421700.html . You need to install a patch for your e-business suite. However, since you're trying to run an old release of e-business suite that probably won't support anything but OL 5 (5.11) or later without patches, I'd rather suggest you do the following:
Install Windows 10 for which your computer was made for, then install Oracle VirtualBox (free), then install OL 5 and e-business suite in a guest system. That should work.
I download 5.4 from edelivery.oracle.com
Unfortunately the link that you gave is not suitable for me as this is a fresh install in a new machine rather than a clone system but thanks anyway.
For virtual box, that would be my last option as I prefer not to use it for production system later on. This installation is to test whether possible or not to migrate our current system.
The vendor of your computer does not list support for any other system than MS-Windows. This is typical when you have proprietary hardware for which exists no open source support.
If it has to be 5.4 you might be wasting your time.. Check you're BIOS and see if you can disable xHCI hand-off and enable eHCI to support USB2 drivers. If this isn't available, check if your computer supports anything else for keyboard and mouse, such as PS/2.
Thanks, Dude. I managed to solve the problem with the help from Oracle Support. They gave me another link to download so now I can use OL 7 and unzip 5.
