Installing RHEL 6 on XenServer


Hi,

I'm trying to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 6 onto VM in a XenServer farm.

I have an iso from edhat which I'm using to do the install which is mounted on the VM as it's DVD drive.

THE VM boots from the disk, asks me to select my language and then asks if i want to check the media.
No matter what I select - Yes, or Skip - it then progresses onto the next stage where it asks me where the install media is. I select local CDRom drive, but it says 'The Red hat Enterprise Linux disc was not found in any of your CDROm drives. I try to eject the iso, but the M has locked the drive.
So basically, it boots from it, loses it, asks me where it is, kind find it but won't release it!!

Any help would be great!!

Sounds like the virtual cdrom drive is not being detected, what type did you set it to? ide?

Where would that setting be?
All I've liteerally done, is create the Vm in XenCenter, sleect the boot.iso as the virtual DVD drive and boot from that. Then Select Install and away it goes..

I don't have access to Xen but there should be an option to change the vm's cd drive settings
