Re: Cant bring up cold backup

Step 3 is the problem.  Doing this means you must perform incomplete 
recovery, which is probably not what you want.

After your database is shutdown cleanly, include the controlfiles in 
your cold backup, you should then be able to bring it up on another 
machine using those controlfiles.
