RH 8.0 installer won't accept keyboard input

I'm trying to do a fresh install of RedHat 8.0 on an almost new Dell
machine. I insert CD #1 and reboot and the machine reboots to the first
screen of the installer. I then hit <Enter> to kick the install of in
graphical mode. I'm then presented with 'CD Found' screen which offers
me the option of testing the CD media or skipping that step. This is
all as should be except that the machine/installer won't accept any more
input from the keyboard or mouse. I thought the problem might be
related to the fact that I'm using a Logtech wireless keyboard but I
swapped it out for an older one but the install still behaved the same. I have absolutely no idea where to go from here; I'm dead in the
water. Does anyone have any suggestions? For what it's worth I was
able to install RH 7.3 on this machine without any problem. Also I should mention that I've used these 8.0 disks to install on another machine without any problems. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone may have.

I got this with RH 8 & 9 install as well. The problem I was getting is that I was enabling Kerberos, and after this no more keyboard entries were accepted. I disabled the kerberos option and it all worked fine. I don't think that it was specfically the kerberos option. You might try doing something different when you try it again (Accept the disk check).

Not science, but it is software after all.

Best of luck,
