You can choose either Linux 64-bit or Win 32-bit - see OS requirements here - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/index.htm. Home version of Windows is not certified. If you have Home version of Windows, one option is to create a VM using free Virtualbox software (http://www.virtualbox.org), then installing a supported OS in the VM (Oracle Linux is free from https://linux.oracle.com).
You may find my blog (referenced in my profile) helpful.
As mention here the best method is creat vm machine for your issue. You can use OEL linux which can be download from e-delivery site freely.
I suggest review www.oracle-base.com/ and also http://kamranagayev.com/step-by-step-oracle-guides/ which are usefull and which has video tutorial.
If you have any doubt please update here
