I tried installing Oracle8i on my friends computer having a config. as stated below:-
Intel 845 chipset motherboard.
Onboard Graphics and sound.
LG 52X CD-ROM Drive.
When I put the CD in the drive the CD autoruns and the Oracle installer dialogue opens.When I select install it gives me 3 options out of which I select the 1st one,install Oracle8i Enterprise Edition.The installation goes forward and stops for sometime at 73%,but is installed without any errors.
I then restart the machine for precaution.After that whenever I try to start Oracle first time with the User Name:-scott and Password:-tiger I get a error saying "Error 12154.Could not find the specified service" and Oracle does not start.I tried reinstalling it in vain.
Waiting for some help.
Thanks in advance...
