This time around it worked. That's when I arrived at Step 1 of 10. Had to decide between a desktop and server class. Well my little laptop is definitely the desktop variety. Then I was given the chance to specify the Windows user for the Oracle home user. I just chose a built-in account. That might be a security risk in the production world. But this is just my throw away database.
There was a drop list choice for the installation type. However the only option in it was the Enterprise edition. Good enough for me. The global database name was defaulted to "orcl.home" which I accepted as is. For some reason I decided to save my response file. You never know when I might want to do an unattended install with the same set of options.
Here were the steps for the database install:
- Copy files
- Setup Oracle base
- Oracle Database configuration
