    I hope you can help or point me in the right direction. I am in a time crunch/jam. I started a 6 week Oracle database class last week. I had to buy a new laptop that has Windows8 which added another learning curve. I read a VirtualBox download will allow me to install and use Oracle 11g. Can you help? I'm not sure how to go about it. I am using:

    ASUS Notebook PC

    Processor: Intel(R)Core(TM)i7-363QM CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz

    Installed memory (RAM): 8.00 GB (7.89 GB usable)

    System type: 64-bit Operating System, x64-based processor

    Any advice is greatly appreciated!!! Thanks in advance, Heather
