Installation steps of SQL Server 2008 simply and successfully with no prior knowledge
Developers and system administrators will find this installation .doc as will season DBAs. It will teach you the basics required for a typical, problem-free installation of SQL Server 2008, allowing you to add other components later if you wish. PRE-REQUIESITE  1) Remember to install the .Net Framework 3.5 Before you start the installation, you’ll need to install the .Net 3.5 Framework. This comes pre-installed on Windows 2008 Server, but for earlier versions of Windows, you’ll need to install it first. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE524E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en

Using your DVD-burning software, select the options to burn a DVD from an .ISO image. When you are prompted for a file to use, select the image file that you downloaded. After burning the DVD, locate and double-click Setup.exe on the DVD to begin the installation.
Installation Steps STEP 1: Copy the installation files It is Recommend that you can copy the entire directory structure from the SQL Server 2008 installation disc to the C:\ drive of the machine you are going to install it on.

It makes the installation process much faster than running it from CD/DVD once it gets started. It allows you to easily add or remove components later, without having to hunt around for the CD/DVD. If your media is damaged and a file won’t copy, you get to find out now, rather than halfway through the installation.

Here is screen which is showing you setup.exe file Double click on the setup.exe file.

If you have ISO image in CD of SQL 2008 then run CD and go ahead … First dialog box appears …..

Click on Next. STEP 13: Server Configuration This step allows you to set up the service accounts that will be used to run SQL Server. If you have created Windows NT or Active Directory accounts for use with services, use these. If not, then just to get the installation up and working, use the built-in Network Service account for all three services listed (this account does not require a password). This allows SQL Server to start up after installation. However, it can be easily changed later to another account through the Services applet (Control Panel -> Administrator Tools -> Services):

In addition, remember to change the Startup Type to Automatic, for all three services. This automatically starts the SQL Server database engine, SQL Agent and SQL Browser services when the server is re-booted. BISP | MS BI Installation Guide ©Business Intelligence Solution Providers Page 16

http://bispsolutions.wordpress.com
The first service runs the SQL Server database engines executable process. The other two services allow scheduled jobs to run after installation (and after a reboot), and allow the SQL Server to be found by clients on the network. Make all services manual Click on Next. STEP 14: Database Engine Configuration Account Provision This screen allows you to set up database engine security.

Authentication Mode -If you only need Windows-only authentication.

Mixed Mode- If you are setting up a server for a third party application, rather than one developed in-house, enabling Mixed Mode authentication is a good idea. If you pick Mixed Mode security, you must also enter a password for the system admin account .

Note that you MUST also provide a Windows NT account on the local machine as a SQL Server administrator. If you do not want Windows system administrators to be able walk up to the box and login to SQL Server, create a new, local, dummy Windows user and add this account instead. Otherwise, add in the local administrator account, or your own Windows account on the domain in which the SQL Server will reside.

STEP 15: Database Engine Configuration – Data Directories Click on Add Current user if you login as Administrator

http://bispsolutions.wordpress.com

There is some more option… Click on the Data Directories tab Change the directories to specify which drives in your system will be used for the various types of database files. Generally it’s advisable to put the User database directory and User log directory on separate physical drives for performance, but it will depend on how Windows has been configured and how many disk drives you have available. If you are installing on a single drive laptop or desktop, then simply specify: Data root directory User database directory User log directory Temp DB directory Temp Log directory Backup directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server C:\Data C:\Logs C:\TempDB C:\TempDB C:\Backups

Check that what’s being installed is what you want and then click on Install when you’re sure you want to start the installation process: Installation Progress SQL Server 2008 will now install.
