You will get more help if you change the title of your thread to something that is more descriptive of your problem.

Installing in the gui will normally not be possible when there is not enough ram. You say that you are using a VM and so I suggest increase the ram on the VM and it should be fine.
RH takes a real lot of time to install - so I guess it is actually better that you are not installing all the packages.
After you install the default packages there are ways and means to install the uninstalled packages on the dvd.
Hope this helps.
