Have you looked in the RAC Starterkits on mysupport.
I know it is for RAC, but it should give you a generall guideline.
Stupid question: You are using the grid infrastructure install DVD/download? Also you downloaded 22.214.171.124 (can be directly installed) from mysupport, not 126.96.36.199 right?
188.8.131.52 did not have the "update" screen and no "upgrade" option.
These problems are not yet connected to the disks. They will come later in the installer.
=> You need to create an extended partition on the RAW disk (you probably have to use the command line interface for it, since windows 2008 removed that option in the GUI).
=> You can use asmtoolg to stamp the disks - however I believe the installer gives you this option.
Thanks for posting this feedback for the documentation. I will look into your questions and see if I can get you some answers. However, it would really help to know which version of the Oracle software you are trying to install and which version of the documentation you are using. Are you installing 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11? Also, what is the part number of the installation guide you reference?
I ran into this problem once when using the installer on windows. What was happening was that the installer was exiting, but not posting an error. Check the system logs to see if there are any events posted there related to OUI. Also, check the installation log files under Program Files > Oracle > Inventory > logs
but when I execute that it doesn't actually start the install process, although it does show a "preparing to launch installer" screen that later disappears. (Is it supposed to actually launch the installer?
The download software updates option might depend on the version of Oracle you are installing. For example, 18.104.22.168 vs. 22.214.171.124. I don't think I ran into this feature when installing 126.96.36.199, but I remember seeing it (and not being able to get past it because of not having a valid My Oracle Support login) for 188.8.131.52.
As for configuring the disks to be used with ASM, I would suggest you follow the instructions here: [ http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e18029/storage.htm#CHDGGCAE|http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e18029/storage.htm#CHDGGCAE] I wrote and tested these instructions, so if there is a problem with them, please let me know. If you are using Oracle Restart instead of Oracle Grid Infrastructure, then wherever it says Grid_home, just use the Oracle_home instead. But, basically, you need to use either asmtoolg (GUI) or asmtool (CLI) to stamp the disk partition, so it will be recognized by OUI and ASM.
Oh, forgot to answer one question: how do I do that without first installing the software?
you should be able to access the asmtoolg or asmtool utility from the installation media (or the directory that contains the unzipped installation files). If you did download the software as ZIP files, make sure you have ALL the ZIP files. I think you need at least 3: 2 for the DB software, 1 for Grid/ASM.
