Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 585268
Under VirtualBox, installer does not run
Last modified: 2010-04-23 11:59:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Under VirtualBox, the installer stops after verifying the installation media. Once I do "Test Media", after that test passes, I get a message, "The RedHat Enterprise Linux 6 Disc was not found in any of your drives. Please insert the Redhat Enterprise Linux 6 disk and retry."
The SHA-256 of the downloaded image is
VirtualBox version is 3.1.6 r59338 running on Windows 7 Enterprise. The machine is a Dell laptop with 4GB RAM; I have given the virtual machine 1GB RAM and 8GB disk.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
First Beta of RHEL6.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create new VM in VirtualBox.
2. Assign 1GB RAM and create 8GB Virtual Disk.
3. Assign the ISO of the Enterprise Linux 6 downloaded image to the first virtual DVD drive.
4. Boot system.
5. Run through media test.
Media is ejected after media check is run so you can insert the next disc in the set (if there is one). Of course you can't see that since you're doing a virt install and there's no media popping out at you. You need to make sure the disc is reattached somehow (and how will vary by virt setup) before continuing on. Effectively, you have no media inserted at the moment.
This worked - by un-attaching and re-attaching the ISO the install proceeded normally.
