I'm getting a strange error installing 10G R2 Database on a Windows 2003 server. I get "OUI - 10133 Invalid Staging Area. There are no top level components for Windows NT, Windows 2000 available for installation in this staging area." This happens when I choose an Advanced installation or when I choose a starter database.
The funny thing is that I've performed this installation with this exact installation disk on a virtual server on my laptop with Windows 2003.
Also, I ran a quick test with the 10G R1 installation files and I don't get the error. I want to run tests on case insensitivity with LIKE searches (a new feature enabled in 10G R2) so I can't use 10G R1.
I have seen that problem frequently and it is because for some reason the installer doesn't like burned CD's. Copy all the staging files over to disk. I usually download the zip files onto a staging drive on the server, unzip, install, then delete the install files when I'm done if I need the space.
This has two major benefits: I don't run into the "staging area" error and the install only takes about 30 minutes compared to about 3 hours when installing from CD.
I had the same problem and i fixed it unzipping the flies in the same directory, because it doesn't work when you burn the unzipped folder, if you are gonna burn the files, burn the zip file and copy it to a new location where you are going to work and from there unzip it.
I hope you find this useful.
