I believe this only happens on P4's faster than 1.6GHz. Here is the information from Oracle Metalink:

fact: Oracle8i Client 8.1
fact: Oracle Universal Installer
fact: Ms Windows 2000
fact: Novell NetWare
fact: MS Windows NT
fact: Intel Pentium IV
fact: Pentium IV Processor
symptom: Installation fails
symptom: Oracle Universal Installer terminates
symptom: Installer hangs
symptom: Installer exits
symptom: Installation goes to 100%
symptom: Net8 configuration tools do not appear
change: Upgraded to a Pentium 4 processor
cause: <Bug:1507768>
- Installer fails when running on a new Pentium 4 (IV)
processors. Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the Sun
JRE and Symmantec JIT will encounter this problem. If the version of the
processor is unknown - go to the Intel Website. They have a tool called Intel
Processor Frequency ID Utility which can be downloaded. This will give
processor details.

fix:

There are several workarounds for this problem:

1. Apply patch 1507768 available from Metalink.

2. Copy the contents of the installation CD to Harddisk and rename all
occurences of the file symcjit.dll.

3. Use the Oracle Universal Installer that is shipped with Oracle 9.0.1 or
higher.

For explicit step-by-step instructions for both workarounds see the following article: Oracle Installer 8.1.X Hangs on Machines with Pentium 4 Processors

(Presented here)

Doc ID: Note:131299.1
Subject: ALERT: Oracle Installer 8.1.X Hangs on Machines with Pentium 4 Processors
Type: ALERT
Status: PUBLISHED
Content Type: TEXT/PLAIN
Creation Date: 02-JAN-2001
Last Revision Date: 29-NOV-2001


This alert was modified 14-May-2001 by modifying the vesions affected section to a generic RDBMS version and adding a simplified workaround.

This alert was modified 16-January-2001 by specifying specific Oracle Universal Installer Versions in the the Versions Affected section.

Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) for RDBMS 8.1.x Hangs on Machines with Pentium 4 Processors
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Versions Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Oracle Universal Installer for RDBMS 8.1.x

Platforms Affected
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the Sun JRE and Symantec JIT will encounter this problem. Windows NT, Windows 2000 and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be affected.

Description
~~~~~~~~~~~
When installing Oracle 8.1.x Server Products with the Oracle Universal Installer on machines that use the Sun JRE and Symantec JIT, the installer hangs.

Specifically for the Windows platform, versions of OUI lower than 1.7.1.9.0 will encounter this problem.

Likelihood of Occurrence
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Any platform that uses the Intel Pentium 4 processor, with the Sun JRE and Symantec JIT, OUI version 1.7.1.9.0 and earlier, will encounter this problem.

Windows NT, Windows 2000 and NetWare platforms are confirmed to be affected.

Possible Symptoms
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The failure typically is that the affected application simply terminates.

Workarounds
~~~~~~~~~~~
Solution 1.

1. Obtain patch number 1507768 from Metalink

2. unzip the patch

3. unjar(unzip again) the contents

4. Go to the directory
.cdDisk1stageComponentsoracle.swd.jre1.1.7.301DataFilesExpandedjrewin32binsymcjit.dll

rename symcjit.dll to symcjit.dll.ori

5. Invoke OUI and install OUI to disk

cd .cdDisk1installwin32setup.exe

6. Use the installed OUI to install the RDBMS

7. Invoke OUI from the start menu, and install RDBMS software.

Solution 2.

1. Create a temporary directory on your server.

2. Copy the contents of the Oracle RDBMS Server CD to the temporary directory created in step 1.

3. Search the directory structure created in step 1 for the existence of the filename symcjit.dll.

4. Rename each copy of the symcjit.dll to symcjit.old.

5. Run the setup.exe from the installwin32 directory and install Oracle 8.1.x.

Patches
~~~~~~~
Currently there is not a patched installer available to deal with this problem, one of the two workarounds listed above must be used.

I have followed all the steps stated in the article "Oracle 8i installation on P4 with NT/2000" but still facing the following problem with Oracle 8.1.6.
1. I have copied the oracle 8.1.6. installer CD contents to my HDD
2. I renamed the SYMCJIT.DLL to SYMCJIT.DLL__. I have found only one occurrence of this file.
3. While installing it complains that the database configuration assistant installation failed. In the details window, it states that the SYMCJIT.DLL not found.
4. Now I renamed the SYMCJIT.DLL__ to SYMCJIT.DLL and clicked retry. It still fails.
5. Since Database Configuration Assistant was failed to install, it does not install the starter database also.
6. Now since Database Configuration Assistant does not exist I can not create a database manually.

Please help.

First You copy the Oracle 8i Enterprise edition 8.1.6 CD on your hard Disk.

Remove Oracle key from your registry editor, by using regedit.exe from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARE.

Remove the installed Oracle Folder from your hard disk.

Now you can start the installation from the directory in which you have copied the Oracle 8i CD.

There is no need to rename any file.

Everything works fine.

We have already faced this problem, and came to this solution.

You can also try this.

the name of the file was misspelled.
It is actually SYMCJIT.DLL. The simplest workaround
is just to copy the whole CD to the hard drive,
rename SYMCJIT.DLL to SYMCJIT.OLD and start installer from
the hard drive. You do not even need to install
the JREW 1.1.8...

A workaround for the problem is to Copy the contents of the Oracle 817 cd on the hard disk. Rename symcjit.dll present in D:stageComponentsoracle.swd.jre1.1.7.301DataFilesExpandedjrewin32bin

Setup works.

Mohammed Otoom : IT Developer & Consultant
Solution :

1.Copy the Oracle 8i database Cd to your hard disk.
2.Search for the file symcjit.dll and rename it to any other name for example symcjit.XX or .old ...
3.This file actually responsilpe for displaying the installation wizards when you kill this file you can get rid of Java -Microsoft Probs. in addition to intel P4
4.Install the Oracle 8i folder from your hard disk drive to a c:... path

Thank You all
