It sounds like you are doing things the right way. A 'software only' install is correct for 64bit Windows. First you should have installed a 64bit JDK then done a generic WLS 10.3.3 installation referencing the JDK. Only when you have WLS working should you proceed to the OBIEE installation. From your post it sounds like you know this.
The issue with OPMN not starting is strange. Try running opmn/bin/opmnctl.bat. You should see a bunch of options that will help you troubleshoot why it isn't possible to start it. My guess would be a missing environment variable.
Thanks Paul, really appreciate the update. Spent this morning rebuilding our environment with 64-bit (Win 2008) and starting from scratch. The install has now succeeded. I tell you one thing you pointed out is something we noticed when we proceeded with the second install. That was the WebLogic version. I had initially used .4 and on the second install we used .3. I am guessing that this may have been the issue.
I will verify with our Oracle resources and I hope this post will assist other when doing the 64-bit install as I think it is very vague in the documentation.
I will update the post with Oracles response as well.
Just as an FYI... the reason this issue came up in the first place was we did an Enteprise Install on 64-bit and found that the Gauge Charts weren't working in the SampleAppLite Subject Area. So I will add that to the Tags for this post.
Hope this post helps others and they don't go through the headaches of a wrong install type.
