the workaround:

- Start DBCA to create a database
- Get the error O/S-ERROR: (OS 1388).  Don't Stop it here.
- Go to Services and start service "oracleservice(ORACLE_SID)"
for example : Start > Control Panel > Services > Start OracleServiceORCL
- Continue Installation.

I had the exact same problem.  I discovered that my problem was I was trying to install Oracle 10g on a Domain Controller.  I also tried the suggested fix about starting the service manually, and that worked - - - until I restarted my server, at which point the database would not start.

I fixed the problem by demoting my computer from a Windows 2003 Domain Server to a simple file-server.  I then disabled all the oracle services in the Services panel, removed references to Oracle from the registry, rebooted, and installed Oracle 10g without a single hitch.

I believe the problem is that the Oracle installer requires a local computer account with sufficient privleges - but on a Win2003 Domain Controller, there are no local machine accounts - only Active Directory accounts.  So, by demoting the Domain Controller to just a file-server, I re-enabled local machine accounts.

Note that demoting a domain controller is a significant change, not to be undertaken lightly.   But, since this was just my test-bed machine, I didn't mind doing it.

Hope this helps - Steve Capps from Durtaek Inc.
