4 Install Oracle 10G on Windows 2008R2


  • Change the network card ip address to static IP.
  • Configure the firewall to allow the Oracle Port number

While trying to install the Oracle 10G on the Windows 2008 R2, you may encounter the error message “
Checking operating system version: must be 5.0, 5.1, 5.2 or 6.0.    Actual 6.1


The 6.1 is the windows Kernel version which representing the Windows 7 and Windows 2008R2. type winver.exe will show you the current windows build.


NOTE: Hacking Oracle software is not recommended.

If you are sure this OS is compatible with Oracle, the easy way to get around this restriction is updating below files:


Replace 6.0 with 6.1 and re run the installer.

Example of the oraparam.ini as below:

[Certified Versions]
#You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for CERTIFIED_VERSION_FAILURE_MESSAGE



After the installation , the Enterprise Manger ( DB Console service) fail to start up. I have spend lots of time for research without success. The only thing I have not try is to apply the path because one Oracle support post mention that the Root certificated has been expired which could cause the issue.
