Install Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.6 in VirtualBox

I am having windows 8.1 laptop and installed VirtualBox 4.3.26. I am trying to install OEL 6.6 that I downloaded from Oracle site.

I have 5 iso images

Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 source DVD 2--->V52217-01
Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 for x86_64 (64 Bit)--->V52218-01
Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 UEK Boot ISO image for x86_64 (64 bit)--->V52220-01
Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 Boot iso image for x86_64 (64 bit)--->V52219-01
Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 source DVD 1--->V52216-01


I have setup the VM and tried to start the VM to install Linux. I selected the "Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 Boot iso image for x86_64 (64 bit)--->V52219-01" as IDE Primary Master as this will be the boot disk. It goes to the installation screen, but then it asks for the source files, not sure how to proceed, I tried to change the image to "Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 source DVD 1--->V52216-01" but it does not help.

selected option

this is where I get stuck

I tried to update/ create new hard drive, but it did not help. I tried using another image that I downloaded from the net(it was a single file) and it worked fine.

Any suggestions. Thanks.

Answer

The ISO image you need to map as virtual DVD in the VBox Virtual Machine settings is the 3.7 GB one:

Oracle Linux Release 6 Update 6 for x86_64 (64 Bit) V52218-01.iso
