In order to start the installation, navigate to <staging_area>/startCD/Disk1/rapidwiz and then run the executable rapidwiz to start the installer. After that it will show below screens.
1. Global System settings
On this screen, It will ask for the Port Pool that is the set of default base value for each type of port or services. Select from 0 to 99 and if you select zero, you will get the default port numbers. In R12.2, you need to specify 2 port pool, One is for patch edition and second is for run time edition.

On this screen, you select what type of database you would like this EBS to- Vision Demo Database or Fresh database and other database details like database SID, Database Hostname, Domain name,Database Operating system, Database OS User/Groups, Database Base Directory, Home directory etc. In R12.2 , you get new option to select RAC database during installation on this screen.
