I had installed oracle Linux 5 on oracle virtualbox as my primary OS was Win7 Home premium.
However, I now have a system with virtually no operating system.
Could you please let me know if OL 5 can be installed on a system having no OS ?
4GB RAM / 500 GB HDD / Intel 3rd gen Ci5

How do you think an OS gets loaded on a system when it is first built? Of course it can be installed on a system having no OS.
It's not clear what you have and even less clear how you got there. Are you saying you stated with a machine running Windows, then you installed Virtual Box, then used VBox to create a virtual machine, then you tried to install Linux on that virtual machine, and somehow trashed your Windows installation?
Or something else?
BTW, this forum is Databases - Installation.
Your question would be better served under
Is this just the next chapter in what appears to be a continuing saga?
