12.2. Preparing for a Hard Drive Installation
Hard drive installations only work from ext2, ext3, ext4, or FAT file systems. You cannot use a hard drives formatted for any other file system as an installation source for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
To check the file system of a hard drive partition on a Windows operating system, use the Disk Management tool. To check the file system of a hard drive partition on a Linux operating system, use the fdisk tool.
Use this option to install Red Hat Enterprise Linux on systems without a DVD drive or network connection.
Ensure that you have boot media available on CD, DVD, or a USB storage device such as a flash drive.
