Installing Oracle Linux 7 on Oracle VM server

Installation instructions here:
Download the ISOs here (choose the "Oracle Linux 7 Media Pack for x86 64 bit")
There are 2 ISOs available in this media pack
Oracle Linux 7 Boot ISO image for x86_64 (64 bit) = V46138-01 (= oracle-linux-7-boot.iso )
Oracle Linux 7 for x86_64 (64 bit) = V46135-01 (= oracle-linux-7.iso )

To be on a safe side I choose the big fat V46135-01 ("This ISO image contains everything needed to boot a system and install Oracle Linux"). In fact this image too is bootable - Oracle naming is a bit confusing !

(remember to set the boot order, first CD/DVD then HD... and once installation is completed, revert the order, first HD then DVD... to be on the VERY safe side just eject the DVD after installation)

Installation is just smooth.... apart from the issue of having 2 mouse trails on the graphic console...
