Set Windows XP in "Save mode" and choose "Deinstalation" from your instalation disk.

Fouaddba,

Is there an error message when trying to create database or Net8 (like: 'Cannot find log file',or stg like this?)

Can you start your Net8 assistant?
Can you start your Enterprise manager?

After deinstallation, take a look at your services: is there any "%Oracle%" services? (If yes, check your registry folders to remove ALL services in the different sets: maybe 2, maybe 3...). After this, reboot first your computer before starting your installation again! This is called: "Windows Clean-Up" ;D

Note: Let's get rid of Microsoft. Try Oracle on Linux (cheaper, faster and safer!)

Regards,
Ix.

You may also have to remove any old installation log files. For some reason, Oracle installer looks at them to determine if there are any products already installed. This some times prevents you from reinstalling the software though you have removed the files manually.
