Oracle installation on Windows 64 bit with Intel Xeon

Former Member

Hi!

we have Windows Enterprise Server SP2 <b>64 bit</b> with <b>Intel Xeon</b> processor and would like to install the SOLMAN with Oracle.

According to the original Oracle-DVD from SAP there are only three possible choise entries:

a) AMD64

b) IA64

c) I386

But I have the feeeling it should be one choice like "x86" is not?

Which one should we apply?

The I386 can be installed indeed, but we are getting the error during the SAPINST-Installation "Oracle software not installed". I thought this entry was only for 32 bit?

The IA63 Bit can not be installed.

<b>Only the AMD64 we could install. But the question is, whether AMD is the same to Intel Xeon?</b>

Thank you very much for any useful help/comments...

regards

And additionally: XEON does not autmatically mean, it's 64bit, XEON is a special processor with more cache than usual Pentium processors, the difference between 32bit and 64bit is not the XEON but the processor flags.

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xeon">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xeon</a>

"Xeon chips generally have more cache and support larger multiprocessor configurations than their desktop counterparts."

definitely not IA64!

IA64 is Itanium as Markus told.

you have to choose AMD64

AMD64 is the correct one.

IA64 is "Intel Itanium-2"

I386 is generic "Intel Pentium (32bit)"

AMD64 is the generic term for processors supporting EM64T (Intel) or AMD Opteron
