    1. Hi JR,

      i have some doubts,

      two primary partitions are mandatory to install rhel 6.2? (/boot is mandatory, / mandatory)

      I tried with one primary partition it is not possible for me, because we can not assign the /boot in LVM’s. So we need to create /boot in our primary standard partition only.

      after that we need to create to root and swap partitions, at this time it throwing an error related to ” the disk contains maximum partitions already ” (the message is not exactly same, but the meaning is that).

      In my laptop i am already using win 7. rhel 6 is second os. i am using a dual boot.

      And also i am unable to install the rhel6 by selecting the first option i.e ” install or upgrade an existing system “. If i select this option at the hardware checking, the display turns black and need to force stop my laptop(dell inspiron 15r 5520, i5 3rd gen, 500gb, 4gb ram, only integrated graphic card is there i.e intel HD-4000).

      But i am able to install it by selecting the “install the system with basic video driver”.

      Is this problem with my laptop or rhel6?

      sorry for the long story, hope you understand.

      • Hi sscr,

        You have to use extended partitions when you have more than 4 partitions. So do not make them all as primary partitions. Also you can make swap partition on your LVM setup.

        Some reason your Intel graphics card doesn’t work with RHEL installer, so that’s why you have to select “install the system with basic video driver”. Normally this is fixed when you install system and fully upgrade it.

    2. I also was getting:

      No Disks found
      No usable disks have been found

      But, my VHD was set to IDE controller 1. Taking the hint above, I switched it to SCSI controller, tried again, and it still failed. Then switched it back to IDE controller 1, and then it worked fine.
      Go figure!

    3. i installed rhel6 but how to get gui mode… i think the packages are not installed… i tried with ctrl+alt+f1 but nothing working… plz help
