If you want to install an Oracle database on a notebook, then it is essential that beforehand you install the MS Loopback adapter. This is a “virtual” network adapter.

After installation assign it a fixed IP-addres (192.168.99.99 for example) and you’re ready to install the Oracle Listener and Database instances.

You should not believe people who claim that Oracle doesn’t need it anymore. Maybe Oracle can do without the loopback adapter, but it will prevent a lot of issues that you would need to solve manuallly.
