ISO cdrom file not found?


I put in the disc for redhat8 that i have used before and boot up with them

I start to go into the installer and it asks for my language, keyboard layout etc

Then it says were do you want to get the ISO files from i click cdrom and it says "please insert the cdrom and press retry" the cdrom is in there, tried it with both of my cdroms, booting with different ones and trying different stuff and still same error

any ideas?

motherboard is a p4c800e dlx if that helps for IDE config

It's not common to chose ISO files from a
CDROM ... you picked the wrong installation
method?



Cheers,

It shouldn't be asking you for ISO-images in the
first place, unless you chose an installation-method
like NFS or from a Hard-disk ...


Cheers,
