Hello,

To configure Oracle using ASM, you need to have at least a disk (or partition) to use as raw disk, and only let Oracle use that disk. You can find a guide here:

http://www.oracle-base.com/articles/10g/ASMUsingASMLibAndRawDevices.php

However, if you don't have any empty disk or partition, you can always repartition with testing purposes with a tool like Partition Magic on Windows:

http://www.partition-tool.com/resource/resize-partition-windows-7.htm

Or gparted on linux:

Good luck!
