Maybe a BIOS problem/incompatibility with OEL version?
If you purchased support with OEL then you can try to get some help from oracle ( good luck on that one ). I tend to like to do the install with almost every package in the world already selected but I am lazy I guess.
Eventually to run Oracle you need to change the kernel away from el5xen but normally you can do that after reboot. Received on Thu Jul 02 2009 - 07:53:19 CDT
