Configure Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a standalone server

As I understand and as the following doc indicated, to install Oracle database, I'd have to install Grid Infrastructure first. I am not configuring RAC/cluster, only on a standalone server.

I executed runinstaller, and choose " install the software only", then after I selected "configure oralce grid infrastructure for a standalone server", I am getting the following error:
[INS-40410] The installer has detected a configured instance of Oracle Grid Infrastructure software on the system

Please advice how this instance have been configured, and how to remove it before I can proceed?

Thanks!

    as per oracle docs the errors clearly says-

    Cause: You have chosen to install and configure a new instance of grid software (Oracle Clusterware and ASM). However, only one configured instance of the software is allowed on the system at a time. Action: You must deconfigure the existing grid software before installing and configuring a new instance of the software.

    Action: You must deconfigure the existing Grid Infrastructure software before installing and configuring a new instance of the software.

    Please follow the below oracle doc. for deinstalling the grid s/w-

    Hi Friend,

    Example : Oracle 11g R2 (11.2.0.3.0) comes with 6 to 7 Zip files in Oracle Metalink.

    1. 1 & 2 zip files for Oracle Software
    2. 3 Zip file for Oracle Grid Software (ASM includes)
    3. If it is Redhat Linux 5.x Or Oracle Linux 5.x Or SUse Linux 11.x means you have to download ASM LIB packages for ASM miantenance.

    Installation Steps :

    1. Install GRID software
    2. Configure ASMLIB
    3. Install Oracle Software
    4. Configure ASM Disk Groups
    5. Create Oracle Database

    Hope it Helps.....

    Thanks
