Installing Oracle 11g 64 bit on Windows Server 2008
When installing Oracle on Windows Server 2008 64 bit, the installer gave a an error saying the Operating System ( OS ) was not supporting. In looking at the install log on c:\program files\oracle, I noticed the installer thinks the OS is windows vista.

To work around this error, I selected the check box for user verified and continued with the install.

Create the Oracle service on the 64bit system, using the ORADIM command.
oradim –new –sid orcl –startmode auto –pfile c:\oracle\product\11.1.0\db_1\init.ora

Run Sqlplus
Issue the command: startup upgrade

Run the script:
cd c:\oracle\product\11.1.0\db_1\rdbms\admin\
--This script invalidates all the objects and change the word size
--This script recompiles the invalid objects
