RHEL 6 -installation


I am trying install rhel 6 on my rhel 5.
I have downloaded rhel6.0-20100715.2-server-i386-dvd1.iso (from redhat ftp site) and burned into dvd. After rebooting i pressed F12 and chose cd installtion.
I get the following message on my screen.

"ISOLINUX 3.86 2010-04-01 ETCO Copyright (C) 1994-2010 H.Peter Anvin et al

No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!

boot: "

Can someone help me with this please ?

Regards,
Learner

there was probably an error in burning the disk. Make sure the iso was burned properly by having the burn utility verify the image correctness

As you mentioned it must be a corrupted image. I downloaded another image and used Nero to burn the dvd. Doing my installation now.
Thankyou

Hi John,
