How to Install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
Posted by Mehmet ÖZKAN on 13 January 2016 10:54:26
SQL Server Setup installs the following software components required by the product:
The first thing that happens when you launch the installation of SQL Server 2008 R2 is it checks for the proper framework. if it is not installed, it will install it for you. In my case, it adds .NET Framework 3.5 SP1
On the next screen, click Installation on the left to display the installation options. We are then going to select New Installation or Add Features to an existing installation.
On the Setup Support Rules you should be able to just click OK. If you click Show Details it will look something like this…
Enter your product key then click Next
Accept the license agreement click Next
On the Setup Support Files click Install
On the Setup Support Rules screen, you can see that I have a couple warnings
On the Installation Rules you can click "Show Details" if you like then just click Neximage
Next is the Instance configuration…
for this section, I am going to tell the installer to put my instance on my E Drive.
If you do not yet have an E drive defined you can add it on the fly.
On the Database engine configuration Page we have much to do…
In the Reporting Services configuration, I will leave Install the native mode default configuration and then click Next
On the Ready To install screen you can review your configuration and then just click Install
Then just let it chug for about 20 mins or so (depending on performance of your machine it could be longer)
We are done with the installation of SQL. You may want to take a few minutes to read the supplemental information.
Also notice that a log file was left on the system in case you want to refer to it. When finished, you can just click Close.
You probably still have the SQL Server Installation center open. You can close that by clicking the X in the upper right corner.
