Issue when installing Oracle for ECC 5.0


Hi basis gurus,

I am trying to install ECC 5.0 with Oracle as Database and Windows 2003 server .

When going thru the steps of installing database (not Database Instance) it is showing me the error

SID already exists.please try another SID


Actually i have first installed Oracle with an SID (my case ERP) and uninstalled it. Without formatting the machine again wanted to try out installing Oracle with the same SID (my case ERP) and here i am getting the above error message.

SID already exists.please try another SID


Can you guide me how to come over this issue.

Thanks in advance,
