Here is the link to login and download from official site. After downloading RHEL 7.1 DVD Binary ISO image, then burn it to a CD/DVD media or create a bootable USB media using Unetbootin Live USB Creator. Insert the Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 boot-able DVD or USB to your system and choose to boot from DVD or USB from BIOS. Add additional repositories here, and other repositories over http. In production you should always select ‘Minimal Install‘ which installs your system with basic installation. Also option to automatic configure partitioning as well as manual partitioning.
If you are not sure about these better stick to ‘Auto-detected installation Media‘ and Click Done. This way you may choose which software to install and nothing extra thus higher level of customization. Automatic partitioning will do everything for you, but it won’t give you that level of customization as manual partitioning would.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 has enhanced interoperability, improved development and deployment tools as well as security and performance of next level, stability, Red Hat Support, functionality improvement for Active directory environment and access to Microsoft windows file and print server adds to the list.
