Hello

I just installed Oracle XE on my local computer Windows 7.
When I run STARTUP command I get this error:

SQL> startup;
ORACLE instance started.

Total System Global Area  535662592 bytes
Fixed Size                  1384760 bytes
Variable Size             226496200 bytes
Database Buffers          301989888 bytes
Redo Buffers                5791744 bytes
Database mounted.
ORA-01113: file 1 needs media recovery
ORA-01110: data file 1: 'D:\ORACLEXE\APP\ORACLE\ORADATA\XE\SYSTEM.DBF'



I try to fix it by recover but unsuccessfully:

SQL> recover datafile  'D:\ORACLEXE\APP\ORACLE\ORADATA\XE\SYSTEM.DBF'
ORA-00283: recovery session canceled due to errors
ORA-16433: The database must be opened in read/write mode.


Does anybody know what can I do to fix it ?

thanks a lot

OK then: which XP edition do you have? Generally speaking, Oracle might not work properly on any Windows Home edition.

Well, the same combination works just fine for me.

As you have just installed it, maybe you should now uninstall it, completely, reboot the computer and start the installation process once again. Pay attention to possible messages you receive which might point to something unexpected (although, I can't imagine what might go wrong in that simple task).
