1st go through the installation guide provided by Oracle , you can get that from OTN.

Also check few links below which may also guide you to resolve you problem :

What is your windows OS bit ? is it 32 bit or 63 bit?

if 64 then you need to download 11g r2 from oracle.com . Then follow the instructions for installing from the links provided.

If your OS in 32 bit then download the proper version from Oracle website.
If you still dont find the solution then raise a TAR to Oracle(through metalink) as they will be the best to provide the solution on your question.

You need to go farther into the 'Create Database' to tell the database to use ASM.

Check the Docs:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e10897/install.htm#ADMQS002

Again, back to the docs:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28359_01/install.111/b32006/intro.htm#sthref114

1.8.2.2 General Steps for Installing Automatic Storage Management

You need to run the Installer to install the components, then it should be available.

Now:  How to migrate an existing database to ASM is really a different question.

If depends on 'how' you want to do it but it's all in the docs.

For example, using RMAN:

You will need to install grid infrastructure to have ASM available before you can even think about migrating to ASM.

Get your ASM working before we discuss migrating from filesyste to ASM.

>>You will need to install grid infrastructure

Just to clarify:  This is not Oracle's 'Grid Control'.

Also:  This is new in 11gR2 only per the docs:

In past releases, Oracle ASM was installed as part of the Oracle Database installation. With Oracle Database 11g release 2 (11.2), Oracle ASM is part of an Oracle grid infrastructure installation.

Yes slightwv. I saw the author mentioned he installed 11.2 so I assumed he would understand me :)

You're right that ought to be clarified. I intended to but it skipped my mind. Too much on...

11g R2 installation comes as 2 files. 1 is the oracle software which you appear to have downloaded. If you plan to use ASM or install RAC, then you need to download the grid infrastructure file also.

Grid Intrastructure should have been part of the Software download.  Again, it is different from Grid Control.

From the main download page:

- See All, page contains unzip instructions plus Database Client, Gateways, Grid Infrastructure, more

>>I have got no idea how to install install grid infrastructure........

I've never installed it but if you run the same Installer that you installed the are with, there should be an option for Grid Infrastructure.

slightwv,

Grid Infrastructure was introduced in 11.2 and it is a separate download.
It contains clusterware (for RAC) and ASM.

There is no grid infrastructure in 11.1, only clusterware download if you plan to install RAC.

I'm not sure I understand what mawingho is saying now. Has he installed 11.1 and no longer requires assistance, or is he still interested in 11.2?
