I used Vmware to simulate the RAC environment. So before installing the grid infrastruction, make sure you have same oracle user account on both nodes.
if its oracle 11g , there is no need to mention about private network in etc hosts file. just mentioning public and public-vip and scan ip is enough. make sure you have established the ssh between two nodes. If is window it will be more easy when compared to linux/unix box. if its two physical windows boxes, you need two network cards on each server. you need to have a shared storage to configure the ASM . so make sure thats also available.
Thanks for your reply. Do you think there is something wrong about HYPER-V? Did you use Grid 188.8.131.52? Did you install on Windows 2008 R2? Because I searched the web and many people have problem on Windows.
In my case there were just one network card, but I assigned two IP for each. About ssh you mentioned, I didn't read anything about this in documents and other Install tutorials.
One more question about VIP. What are these IPs? Do I have to refer them to an active PC? I just use some unused IP for VIP.
Please verify the cluster pre installation prerequisite for windows server ,
Follow the steps :-
For example, to perform a pre-installation check for an Oracle Database with Oracle RAC installation on a two-node cluster with nodes node1 and node2, enter the following command:
cluvfy.bat stage -pre dbinst -n node1,node2 -verbose
is cluvfy output was success?

My problem was related to the storage I was using. I used a software naming FreeNas that it didn't prepare the sharing feature. When I changed my storage and used a local, simple storage and make it share-able for both server, my problems solved.
