I'm trying and failing to install Red HAt on a XenServer.

I've tried two options;
Hitting New VM, selecting teh Red HAt 6 template, attaching the boot.iso  and running that.  I get as far as selecting where the media is, hitting local CDROm and then it prompts me for a drive disk.  I've created iso's using drivers from the HP site (Server is a HP Proliant Bl460c G7).  When I mount the iso in XenServer and go back to the console and hit ok on ' Insert Drive Disk' I get Failed to mount driver disk.

The other way I've tried is to create a blank vm in XenServer using the other installation media option.  I've mounted the redhat boot.iso in it's virtual dvd drive.  It boots from that, tests the media and then asks me where the install media is, I hit cdrom drive and then it tells me 'The Redhat Enterprise Linux dis was not foound in any of my CDRom drives.

I'm running out of ideas to try!

Hi,

since you were able to terst the disk integrity without a problem. I doubt that you have the correct installation media. Please go to the RedHat Pge, sselect the correct media for the installation and retry.

cheers,
K.

I've attached the download page I get once signed in. I've downloaded and am using  the boot.iso file.

Sorry for late eply. boot.iso is for creating custom PXE boot CD's. As you see it is only 250 MB. The install media is the 3,4 G one.

Cheers,
K.
