Oracle 11g Enterprise Database Creation Memory Error

So I am new to Oracle and was trying to create a Database from a custom template. I was able to go through all of the settings, in the Database Configuration Assistant, okay but when it came time to create the database it gave the following error:

ORA-00837: Specified value of MEMORY_TARGET
greater than MEMORY_MAX_TARGET
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters

Here is the picture of that error box I received:
This is the picture of the error that I received once I clicked to create the database.
I have tried decreasing the amount of memory used, from 8GB to 4GB, but that didn't change anything. I do realize I should probably keep it around 8 GB but I used 4GB for testing to see if it would work. We are using 16 GB Memory with 100 GB Hard Disk Space. Also instead of installing Oracle to the C:\ directory I installed it to our D:\ directory. Any help on this issue would be great.

Adjusting overall memory won't change this message.

The parameters MEMORY_TARGET and MEMORY_MAX_TARGET are initialization parameters.  While running through the wizard there should be a button labeled as such and it will allow you adjust them individually.  Verify the settings and make sure MEMORY_MAX_TARGET is equal to or greater than MEMORY_TARGET.

What template are you using?  If it is one provided by Oracle, this error seems strange but anything can happen.

Wow thanks! This really helps me to understand Oracle a little better. I'm still getting the hang of things. There was a difference in the parameters in that the max was less than the target. This was a template that was made from a previous database that I am trying to recreate on a new server. I really appreciate the help.

Might want to have the DBA of that database look into that.

Welcome to Oracle!!!  As with most really powerful things, it is complex and hard to understand initially but once you grasp things,  you'll wonder how you ever lived without it!
