Anyone care to comment on this?
Regardless I moved on by using the steps in this blog --> [http://onlineappsdba.blogspot.com/2007/10/how-to-apply-11i-patch-when-adpatch-is.html] to stop the upgrade patch and apply patch 7303029 with "preinstall=Y" and then restart the upgrade patch.
It seems to be working but who knows what damage has already been done.
The execute step of 9.1 requires you to run admerge with all the preinstall patches that had been staged during step one of the UPG to Rel 12.1.1 -> Apply Preinstall Patches task. As indicated in note 954704.1 patch 7303029 should have been applied in pre-install mode as well as any necessary financials patches called out in note 1127593.1
So the answer is:
You should have already manually applied patch 7303029 in pre-install mode as indicated in note 954704.1 called out in step one of Apply Preinstall Patches task. Then you should manually apply the merged driver of the preinstall directory and the u6678700.drv driver created in the 9.1 execute step for the complete updated 12.1.1 driver.
When you get to the setup step of 9.1 it just verifies that everything is in place for the manual merge in the execute step. We can enhance this to apply the patch in preinstall mode again in case it was overlooked as in your case.
The text is misleading and we will correct the text and attempt to automate this step in future releases.
Thanks for the clarification.
The fact that the MW "setup" step was downloading patch 7303029 and NOT giving specific instructions on how to apply it in pre-install mode was very confusing. Which led me to assume that it wanted it done this way.
