HI,
I am fairly new Oracle DBA and I am training to find a job.
I made a mistake while typing to create my oracle instance. I would like to drop/delete that instance but I am not able to:

I was supposed to enter:

> ORADIM -NEW -SID prod -PFILE "C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\prod\initprod.ora

instead, I typed in

> ORADIM -NEW -SID prod -PFILE "C:\oracle\product\11.2.0 by mistake i typed "enter" while aiming at the "\"
I got the message:
Instance Created.

I would like to find that instance and drop it completely and try it again.

Thanks

Th oradim utility doesn't create an instance, all it does is create a Windows service. So you can remove it with the Windows registry editor. Or, if you want, you can use oradim with the -DELETE switch:
DIM-00002: The specified command was invalid.
Enter one of the following commands:
Create an instance by specifying the following options:
     -NEW -SID sid | -ASMSID sid | -MGMTDBSID sid | -IOSSID sid | -APXSID sid|
 -SRVC srvc | -ASMSRVC srvc | -MGMTDBSRVC srvc | -IOSSRVC srvc |
 -APXSRVC srvc  [-SYSPWD pass] [-STARTMODE auto|manual]
 [-SRVCSTART system|demand] [-PFILE file | -SPFILE] [-MAXUSERS maxusers]
 [-SHUTMODE normal|immediate|abort] [-TIMEOUT secs] [-RUNAS osusr/ospass]
Edit an instance by specifying the following options:
     -EDIT -SID sid | -ASMSID sid | -MGMTDBSID sid | -IOSSID sid | -APXSID sid
 [-SYSPWD pass]  [-STARTMODE auto|manual] [-SRVCSTART system|demand]
 [-PFILE file | -SPFILE] [-SHUTMODE normal|immediate|abort]
 [-SHUTTYPE srvc|inst] [-MAXUSERS maxusers] [-RUNAS osusr/ospass]
Delete instances by specifying the following options:
     -DELETE -SID sid | -ASMSID sid | -MGMTDBSID sid | -IOSSID sid |
 -APXSID sid| -SRVC srvc | -ASMSRVC srvc | -MGMTDBSRVC srvc |
 -IOSSRVC srvc | -APXSRVC srvc

If you want to continue to get help you should envisage to feedback in your topics and follow the OraFAQ Forum Guide.
Also (once again) read How to use [code] tags and make your code easier to read.

Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals, as solution depends on it (once again).
