    Red face Unanswered: recover database after xp crash

    Hi eveybody

    Due to a crashed motherboard I head to reinstall XP. Oracle 9i was/is installed on another drive which is untouched. Of cource Oracle will not start without it's services and registry entries.

    How can get the database back up or important get my data.

    I did already install another database on the same disk in a different folder.

    as you have all datafiles/controlfiles/init.ora etc... you can use oradim to create a 'new' service:

    oradim -new -sid [INST_NAME] -intpwd [PASSWD] -startmode auto -pfile d:\oracle ....

    afterwards you can start the services.
