Then, you will see a list of available downloads for different architectures and formats. You can choose the ISO file that matches your system architecture and installation method. For example, if you want to install RHEL 8 Server on a 64-bit Intel or AMD system using a DVD or USB drive, you can download the Binary DVD ISO file. The file size is about 7.5 GB.


After you select the ISO file, you will see a download page with a link to the file and a checksum value. You can use the checksum value to verify the integrity of the downloaded file. You can also use a download manager to resume the download if it is interrupted.


Installing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8




After you have downloaded the ISO file, you need to create a bootable media from it and boot your system from it. Then, you can follow the installation program to install RHEL 8 on your system.


Creating a Bootable Media




You can create a bootable media from the ISO file using a DVD or a USB drive. To create a bootable DVD, you need a DVD writer and a blank DVD. You can use any software that can burn ISO files to DVDs, such as Brasero, K3b, or Nero. To create a bootable USB drive, you need a USB drive with at least 8 GB of storage space. You can use any software that can write ISO files to USB drives, such as Fedora Media Writer, Rufus, or UNetbootin.


To create a bootable media, follow these steps:



  • Insert the blank DVD or USB drive into your system.



  • Launch the software that can burn or write ISO files to DVDs or USB drives.



  • Select the ISO file that you downloaded and the DVD or USB drive that you inserted.



  • Start the burning or writing process and wait until it is completed.



  • Eject the DVD or USB drive from your system.



Booting the Installer




To boot the installer, you need to insert the bootable media into your system and restart it. Then, you need to access the BIOS or UEFI settings and change the boot order to prioritize the DVD or USB drive over the hard disk. Alternatively, you can use a boot menu to select the DVD or USB drive as the boot device. The exact steps may vary depending on your system model and manufacturer.


After you select the boot device, you will see a menu with different options for installing RHEL 8. You can choose one of these options:
