You can choose either Linux 64-bit or Win 32-bit - see OS requirements here - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/index.htm. Home version of Windows is not certified. If you have Home version of Windows, one option is to create a VM using free Virtualbox software (http://www.virtualbox.org), then installing a supported OS in the VM (Oracle Linux is free from https://linux.oracle.com).
You may find my blog (referenced in my profile) helpful.
As mention here the best method is creat vm machine for your issue. You can use OEL linux which can be download from e-delivery site freely.
I suggest review www.oracle-base.com/ and also http://kamranagayev.com/step-by-step-oracle-guides/ which are usefull and which has video tutorial.
If you have any doubt please update here
Woah a lot of videos there. It might take time till I can watch all of them. But just to see if I get your point right. Install virtual machine on windows using WM ware and then host the database inside the virtual machine?
you can use virtual box for creating virtual machine on windows and then install operating system OEL 5 on thet virtaul machine then install oracle database on it and use it for testing purpose.
Install virtual machine on windows using WM ware and then host the database inside the virtual machine?Correct ;)
