My desktop model is Dell optiplex 390 (intel core i3).

There is an option whick could be useful:

I cant understand the problem. Also i am not getting very much help from google too.

if you have access to RHEV-H, then surely you also have access to Red Hat technical support?

In any case, is your machine in the RHEL HCL?
