I was using win-7. I tried to install RHEL 6 today. [dual boot]
/ = 40000 MB and /boot = 1000 MB
The installation completed successfully.
The problem is that it is not showing the graphical mode. Only the terminal mode is available. I tried
but I am unable to go to the graphical mode. It is not appearing. What should I do?

Edited after following user76871’s answer:
There is no
Xorg.0.log file in
/var/log/, There is no
/etc/init.d/, there is no
startx that also didn’t work. I tried
system-config-display but the display is not available at system-config-
/var/log/Xorg.0.log and hit / and type
(EE then hit Enter, then to find more errors hit /-Enter.
/etc/init.d/xdm OR kdm restart to try to launch X once you fix the error; you may have to google for them.
(sidenote: Sometimes this may indicate that you’re missing appropriate graphics drivers, which sometimes happens when they get out of sync with the kernel while upgrading and using proprietary drivers… but this would be uncommon when installing.)
login as root and
try init 5 (command for graphical run level)
check default run level is 5 or not
The problem has been solved. Actually at the installation time it asks whether you want to install a
basic server or want to include
desktop and some other features. By default the
BASIC SERVER option is marked and hence it doesn’t include the graphical interface. I reinstalled with the
Desktop option and it worked fine.
