During install of Oracle 10g you shouldn't create a database.
Instead you should create a service only using the oradim utility.
Just fire up a DOS box and type
and follow the syntax for
oradim -new -sid etc.
Oracle comes with a dummy init.ora, edit that one setting the correct sid, and locate it in %ORACLE_HOME%\database\init%SID%.ora
Start the service and
startup nomount of the database using sqlplus connecting as sysdba
now in rman
connect target /
set dbid <dbid , first element of autobackup filename>
restore controlfile from autobackup;
and you should be set.
