I'm a little pissed off.I've installed Oracle 11g R2 a few times now..on windows xp without any issues but the first time I've tried to install 11g R2 64-bit on my new laptop and it just won't work.
The installation goes just fine until step 4 System class and I chose Desktop class and the installation program just hangs.
I've done the following steps
1: Installed Java SDK 6 update 31 in the following directory C:\Java\jdk1.6.0_31
2: I've also disabled User account control settings to never notify.
3: I've tried unzipping the two zip files separately and together with the same result.(hung installation)
4: updated java_home and path environment variables with the java sdk directory. (My path does have other values which have a space between directory names..ive tried
removing all those entries and just keeping the java directory entry but it still gave me the same error)
5: I always kick off the installation setup.exe file as an administrator.
I'ld appreciate some help....

As mention here home version is not certified. You can use vmmachine which you can install OEL5.x from edelivery freely and can try to make installation on it
I'm now upgrading to the professional version and hope that works
