First I suggest you please read the LQ rules - double posting is not allowed and should be avoided.

but still i didnt get my answer.
LQ is a community driven site - nobody is FORCED or PAID to help you. Thus making statements like this may result in people ignoring your posts.

This message is generally posted when the location of your installation; as defined in your kickstart, does not contain a valid Red Hat install image. Alternately it could be that the box you're trying to install is unable to connect to the network location where the Red Hat installation files are.

@Mods - can you please merge this with which is a duplicate of this.

First, double posting is a bad thing - post reported to mods.
Second, we're all volunteers, nobody here is forced to rush to help you *right now*. If you want that, go get paid support.
