    1 xp
    2 10g rel2 standarad edition
    3 it is the second step of installation , product-specific prerequisite checks ,
    all checks are succeeded except the network configuration (warning) ,

    i think this step make me have to write my ip address manually not automatically , i believe this will solve the problem ,
    but i am asking if i do not , is it normal or i have to do it .

    thanks

    Pl identify which exact version of XP - Home version is not certified for Oracle installs.

    A static IP address is required for the install - the easiest way to do this is to install a loopback adapter - this process is documented

    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/install.102/b14316/reqs.htm#ABC4920148SRI1

    Is there a reason you are installing a desupported version of the software as opposed to 11gR2 ?

    You will need a loopback adapter regardless of the version of Oracle you are installing

    What do you mean by 'wrote my ip's manually'?


    The error message was very clear:

    +Problem: The install has detected that the primary IP address of the system is DHCP-assigned.
    Recommendation: Oracle supports installations on systems with DHCP-assigned IP addresses; However, before you can do this, you must configure the Microsoft LoopBack Adapter to be the primary network adapter on the system.

    Particularly that last sentence: " See the Installation Guide for more details "
