well what do you actually need help with? please use a more insightful thread title and provide a more detailed question in future posts, thanks.

oh and redhat 7.1 is pretty old now, you'd do well to get 9.0 or such like.

well that's becuase you're using an old distro actually, the bootloader software on a version that old can't be used past the 1024th cylinger (8.4gb) get a newer version or place the /boot partition within the first 8.4gb of the drive.

if you can't download it, there are many many places you can buy the distros for a few dollars (perfectly legally)
