Redhat Enterprise Linux 7.0 Installation

Redhat has made a lot of changes in Redhat Enterprise Linux 7.0(RHEL 7) when we compared to the previous versions. These changes likely to remind me that what oracle has done with Solaris 11. Most of the operating system vendors are forced to include many virtualization technologies to support the cloud and Redhat also one among them. Redhat has completely changed the service management , booting process, Firewall and networking in RHEL7. The Redhat Linux enterprise Linux 7’s installation method also got changed little bit but its very simple.  Let’s see that how we can install the REHL 7 .

1. If you would like to install the Redhat Enterprise Linux 7 in to the physical machine , insert the RHEL7 DVD on to the drive and boot from DVD.

2. If you want to install the RHEL 7 on the VMware virtual machine , create the virtual machine with guest operating system as “Other Linux 3.x kernel 64 bit” (If your hyper-visor is not supports RHEL7).

3.When the system is booting from DVD , you will see the message like below.
