I get this message in the install wizard of Oracle 11g express edition.
Checking for oracle XE service instance : failed
Checking for Operating System Requirements
Expected Result: XP or above
Actual Result: Windows 7/Windows 2008 R2
Someone please assist on this issue, I am very new at this.

So baseline is window 8 is not compatible with oracle 11g edition. How long will it take to get certification ? I am able to download MySQL without hitch but not oracle. Sounds Weird that new OS is released without proper testing.

Win 8 OS works as expected - not sure what you mean by "Sounds Weird that new OS is released without proper testing." If you have issues with Win 8 OS, pl post them in the Windows forums.
Oracle has not yet certified any software to be installed on Win 8
