Manual OS Installation

With this method, you do not use Oracle System Assistant to install an OS. Instead, you deliver the Windows distribution media on either a local or remote CD/DVD drive, USB device, or CD/DVD image. You also need to supply the necessary tools and drivers. The tools and drivers for the server are available from the My Oracle Support site as server-specific and OS-specific packages. To install the OS, use the distribution media's installation wizard.
