Hi Arun

1. Remove the previous half installed oracle, also remove from the entry from registry (regedit). And then install oracle 8i because your control file is conflicting with previous oracle.

2. Alter database backup control file to trace.

3. find entry in .trc file convert it into .sql file
(only take executable commands from trace file).

4. Connect as svrmgrl and then as internal and run the .sql file. Before that you would have to startup and mount the database (

svrmgr>connect internal/oracle
svrmgr>startup mount
svrmgr>@ //path/.sql_file
svrmgr>alter database open
