Help us out a little bit...

What's happening? Does anything show up? Does anything boot? Is there an error?

Yes, you've made it very clear what processor family it is, but you need to provide more information if you want anybody to offer anything even remotely resembling useful advice. If you're using RHEL, have you tied contacting support? You are paying for it, right?

redhat is NOT really free
you do have to buy the REQUIRED support contract !!
-- there are NO if's and's or but's

the standard 1 year contract is $299 per year

or

use the FREE clone
CentOS

but unless YOU MUST use the older 6
it is advisable you eather
BUY!! RHEL 7.1
or use the free CentOS 7.0
http://centos.org/

it also IS VERY ADVISABLE!!! that you read
and i do mean READ

the install guide

-- for the current RHEL 7.1
https://access.redhat.com/documentat...ide/index.html

for the older RHEL 6
https://access.redhat.com/documentat...ide/index.html

and STUDY!!! the rest of the redhat documentation

A8 is recent processor so it has recent gpu core integrated. So a new recent kernel, libdrm is needed to run it nicely. Instead you may try latest RHEL or CentOS or even try a Fedora 21/22 liveDVD to test.
