You can apply patch and create new directory.

Please set me straight, you have searched your entire file system and cannot find the oraInst.loc file?  As in, "find / -name oralnst.loc -print"?  If so you may have a bigger problem on your hands.
However, if it was merely mislaid or just wandered off by itself, there is a method to edit it.  See http://connect.oraclebusinessapps.com/?p=1279  and let me know if I may be of further help.
Regards,

Oracle Universal Installer enables you to set up the Central Inventory on a clean host or register an existing Oracle home with the Central Inventory, when it is lost or corrupted. You can set up the Central Inventory by using the -attachHome flag of Oracle Universal Installer. The syntax is as follows:

./runInstaller -silent -attachHome -invPtrLoc ./oraInst.loc
ORACLE_HOME="<Oracle_Home_Location>" ORACLE_HOME_NAME="<Oracle_Home_Name>"
"CLUSTER_NODES={<node1,node2>}" LOCAL_NODE="<node_name>"

Hi Team

I faced this problem when I planned to  apply oct2008 cpu patch to oracle10 home on a development box(AIX).  I did not sch the activity due to this missing oracle inventory folder. I need correct solution to this problem. I am not able to find the oracle inventory dir or related files by all means. I think it is missing on this BOX.
