I have experienced the same problem - running 10g Express on a Win 2008 (32-bit). When not being a Domain controller, the install was fine. When installing after the server had been given the Domain Controller role (+the required DNS), it failed. NO FIREWALLS are involved on the server. Seems like Oracle Express has problems being installed in this kind of environment - independent of x32 or x64 bit OS.

I am installing W2k8 R2 Domain Controller with Oracle Express 10g.
This is the tip to make it work.
Go to the installer OracleXE.exe -> Right click + Select Properties + Compatibility + Run this program in Compatibility Mode fot + Windows 2003 Sp1
Then Select Run this Program as administrator.
After this run the OracleXe.exe and it will install properly.
Remember to double check that everything works fine.
