Alter database mount exclusive results in
ORA-00600: internal error code, arguments: [kccsbck_first], , , , , , , 
The description of the error is:
'We receive this error because we are attempting to be the first
thread/instance to mount the database and cannot because it appears that
at least one other thread has mounted the database already'.
However in this case the database was a standalone database on Windows.
It had only one oracle service running.
The operating system was rebooted, the oracle service was deleted and a new service created.
Even then the error persisted.
