Oracle 10g fails to create and start Oracle instance

When I try to install Oracle 10g, in the "creating and starting Oracle instance" stage, an empty menu appears and this phase fails to install. What's the problem?

I have a very terrible problem in installing Oracle 10g. When I try to install, in the "creating and starting Oracle instance" stage, an empty menu appears and this phase fails to install. What's the problem? Is it a hardware problem? Please help me. Thanks in advance!

The first thing to check is whether Oracle 10g is certified and supported with your operating system. Because you have not provided me with information about your operating system, I cannot tell you whether this is the case, but you can refer to Oracle's Certification Matrix for information on this.

From your description, it sounds as thought the installation has completed but there are problems creating a database. Depending on how far along the creation process gets before it errors, you can review the alert log to gather further information. The other place to look is the logs produced by the DBCA (Database Configuration Assistant). These should also give you further information about the database creation process and help to troubleshoot the problem.
