    From the screenshot, it looks like you may not have set the repositories up correctly. You should have added this one:

    Setup/eimage/repository.config

    What happens when you use that one?

      After setting up the repository, I tried test connection. It shows, "All repositories are connected". But after that im getting the screen which i have attached.

        Can you show a screenshot of your repositories?

            Ok, it must be an issue with either not having all of the media downloaded or not having it extracted in a way that IIM recognizes. The way it is supposed to work is that IIM reads this file:

            Setup/eimage/repository.config

            The repository.config file points it to the Portal and WAS media directories. You can open up the file in a text editor and see what it's looking for. You need to also have those directories.

            What parts did you download and how did you extract them?

              One other thing to add to httweed's question would be how large is the folder containing all of the extracted items?

                Adding further, I guess the issue is that the download may not contain all the required packages which would result in error.

                You can add the snapshot of the error msg you are facing or check the installation logs for further info.
