Whether you’re installing a new operating system, software, or application, the installation process requires you to choose a number of settings. But where exactly are these settings stored? The answer depends on the installation process in question.
When using a kickstart installation, all of the settings that were chosen during the installation process will be stored on the Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) server. The PXE server is a special server that is used to automate the installation process.
Installing Oracle Database XE
When installing Oracle Database XE, all of the settings that were chosen during the installation process will be stored in the installation directory that was chosen by the user. This is usually a directory within the C:app
For other installations, such as for software applications, the settings that were chosen during the installation process can usually be found in the installation directory. If the installation was done with a setup wizard, then the settings may be stored in the BIOS, in flash memory, or in the recovery partition. It will depend on the particular installation process that was used.
