 Please help: Install Oracle 9i Enterprise on Windows 2000

Oracle Gurus,

I downloaded Oracle 9i Enterprise for NT from technet.oracle.com.
Followed the instrusts on
http://www.***.com/ , I
unzipped the three files to Disk1, Disk2 and Disk3 directories. When I
double-clicked the setup.exe in the Disk1, a sand clock appeared for
less than a second then nothing else happened.

I rebooted and tried again and again. All the same. Please give me
some advices. Thanks in advance.

Some info about my PC

HP P4,
RAM 256m
dual boot system with Windows ME
O/S: Windows 2000 Pro in drive D, free space 15G

Oracle and Pentium 4's have a known problem.  Please try searching
google.com before asking the same old thing yet again (the last post about
this was just yesterday!).

There is a workaround available.  Search for those other posts, and you'll
find it.

Regards

It looks like the bug with Pentium 4 with the installer still exists.
The solution to this has been posted several times.

I have included it below for your reference.

|
| This alert was nodified 16-January-2001 to Oracle : Oracle Universal
| Installer (OUI) for 8.1.x Hangs on Machines with Pentium 4
|
| Versions Affected :
|
| Oracle Universal Installer 1.6.0.9.0
| Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.0.19.0
| Oracle Universal Installer 1.7.1.9.0
|
| Platforms Affected :
|
| Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the Sun JRE
| and Symmantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT, Windows 2000
| and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be affected.
|
| Solution :
|
| 1 - It is also recomended to configure Windows to use only 256 colors.
|
| 2 - Not only will OUI be affected by this bug, most of the post-install
| configuration tools will also be affected. Running these tools with "-nojit"
| specified will avoid the hang, but it is not simple to specify "-nojit" for
| some of the products.
|
| The following workaround works for the Windows operating system:
|
| a. Copy only the install directory from the CD to the hard disk ,say,
| e:\temp.
|
| b. Open oraparam.ini and make the following modifications (Assuming CD
| drive is f:)
|
| * Change the "SOURCE=" line to use the full path to the CD instead of a
| relative path. (i.e., SOURCE=f:\stage\products.jar)
|
| * Change the "JRE_LOCATION" line to use the full path to the CD instead of a
| relative path. (i.e.,
| JRE_LOCATION=f:\stage\Components\oracle\swd\jre\1.1.7\1\DataFiles\Expanded)
|
| * Change the "OUI_LOCATION" line to use the full path to the CD instead of a
| relative path. (i.e.,
| OUI_LOCATION=f:\stage\Components\oracle\swd\oui\1.6.0.9.0\1\DataFiles\Expand
| ed
|
| * Change the "JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS" line to add "-nojit" as the first
| argument.
| (i.e., JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32m)
| ^^^^^^
| * Other entries should remain the same
|
| c. Launch setup.exe from the temporary location on your hard drive (i.e.
| e:\temp\install\win32\setup.exe). This will use the modified
| oraparam.ini and pick up the information from the CD since the absolute
| locations are specified.
|
| Choose a Custom install and choose not to create a database during the
| install. This way, the Database Configuration Assistant will not be launched
| during installation.
|
| The Net8 Configuration Assistant will still be launched, and there is no way
| to suppress it. You will need to kill the Net8 Configuration Assistant if it
| hangs due to the bug. The installation still will have been successful, and
| you can run the DBCA and NetCA after installation.
|
| To kill NetCA if it hangs during installation:
| In the "Configuration Tools" window, highlight the "Net8 Configuration
| Assistant" and click "Stop". If that does not work, look for the most recent
| JRE process using the Task Manager, and kill it manually. NOTE: the OUI
| itself will also have a jre process. Be sure to kill the one with the most
| recent date, which should be the jre process being used for Net8CA, not the
| one for OUI itself.
|
| After killing the configuration tools and continuing through the
| installation
| to the "End of Installation" screen, you should modify the configuration
| tools
| to use "-nojit", then call the appropriate tools from the Start Menu.
|
| Once installation is complete, each of the following files in the
| ORACLE_HOME
| needs to be modified:
|
| assistants\dbca\dbassist.cl
| assistants\dbma\dbmig.cl
| assistants\ifa\ifa.cl
| bin\elogin.cl
| bin\owm.cl
| ldap\oidamdin\oidadmin.cl
| network\tools\netasst.cl
| network\tools\netca.cl
| owm\install\instelogin.cl
| owm\install\instowm.cl
|
| Edit the contents of the above files to add "-nojit" as shown below:
| Command=("C:\Program Files\Oracle\jre\1.1.7\BIN\JREW" -nojit -classpath ....
| this is the only thing you need to add --> ^^^^^^
|
| Then, launch the necessary tools, like Net8CA and DBCA from the Start Menu.
