Installation crashed - how to proceed?

HI everyone,

Well my Redhat8 install died about 3/4 of the way through. System locked up for about a half hour so rebooted. So now i'm just sitting at this grub prompt wondering how the hell i can get back to the installation?

Any tips on how to proceed?

If you make sure that your BIOS is set to boot from the CD before the Hard drive then you should be able to restart the installation by inserting cd1 and rebooting. It may be worthwhile running a media check before the install if you did not do so last time.
