First, welcome to Koha!
On http://www.koha-de.org/wiki/Koha/Demo-Installationen I looked for a
Koha demo installation running 16.05.03 - the one by Turo Technology is
currently down, but I found one running 16.05.04 by Orex:
http://intra1.orex.es/ (user name and password are both "admin")

What are you exactly doing when you're trying to create one? What
exactly does happen when it fails?
Best wishes, Michael
