Installing SQL Server 2008 X64 on WIndows 2008 Server

Steps 2 & 3 are provided from the installer.
1. Run Windows Update
2. Install 3.5 SP1
3. Patch KB943388
4. Run System Configuration Checker
5. Install SQL Server 2008

Setup test should pass

For this example I left out the client SDK and Sync Framework for Features

Since this is going to be the only instance on this box I left it to default instance.

I created domain accounts (Local user accounts if not joined to a domain) for each service on in this list but integration services.

First tab has windows or mixed depending on your requires for authentication. Second tab has the your directories for where you wish to store install and databases.
