Smile Red hat installation freezing on laptop


I created a bootable red hat usb drive by using the file Red_Hat-server-6.0-i386.iso. By using this usb I can install red hat smoothly on my desktop but not on my "dell-inspiron-15-3567 intel-core-i5-7200 CPU@2.50GHZ ✕ 4" laptop.
The installation freezez at the screenshot shared at link https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_D...ew?usp=sharing.

There are numerous things wrong with this:
  1. You're using Red Hat Enterprise SERVER on a laptop.
  2. RHEL 6 is OLD...the latest is 7.2, with 7.3 out shortly, if not already out.
  3. You're trying to install an i386 (32 bit) image on a 64 bit machine
  4. The image itself is old, and you're running new hardware...which probably wasn't developed/released when RHEL 6 was released, so it has no way of knowing about it.
Most importantly, are you PAYING for RHEL??? Because if you're not, you should not be using it. You do not get bugfixes/security updates, or access to the online repositories, making your system hard to maintain and unstable and insecure to boot. If you are paying for your RHEL 6, then call Red Hat support. If you're not, get the latest version of CentOS and install it.

There is no good reason to use RHEL on anything else other than a server.
