Windows XP (professional or Home) Service Pack 2 with 1 GB RAM ( you can do it on
512 MB also but not at all efficient) and make sure you have NTFS file system.
HD min 150 GB (c\u2019mon your system and staging also need some space don\u2019t agree with
who says it work 100 GB with vision DB). You can use external hard drive too.
Don\u2019t listen to those who advise you to install EBS 11i without vision database. I know
you are installing all this for learning etc.
Make sure there is no oracle product installed on your system. No entry of oracle should be in windows registry except system default by windows itself. So it is recommended to use fresh system for this purpose. If you tried a failed installation before on your PC then reinstall the OS (Win XP) again otherwise you will waste your time.
There should be!!!!NO!!! JDK installed on your machine. EBS 11i will install JDK version on your machine otherwise you will get errors I don\u2019t want to discuss all this here. Just NOOOO JDK on your machine.
