Before begin the SCCM 2012 installation, I follow the Supported Configurations for Configuration Manager article to prepare my lab environment. One of most important thing to take note is MSSQL Database collation. The instance of SQL Server in use at each site must use SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS.
