Installing SharePoint 2013 on Windows Server 2012 – Part 2

After installed and configured Windows Server 2012 from part 1, is time to install SQL Server 2012.

Install SQL Server 2012

Insert the installer disc, mount the iso file or whatever, and wait for the auto run. On the SQL Server Installation Center screen, click Installation on the left side, and click New SQL Server stand-alone installation or add features to and existing installation

After that wait for a while and the installer will run some checking.

After clicking OK it will present you with license thingy, just go through it as per usual. Then when reaching Product Updates page, just update if needed, but it required Internet connection which I don’t like when installing software, so I just go ahead.

I would prefer Mixed Mode here, if Mixed Mode was selected then password is required. Also if there is no user in the Specify SQL Server administrators, can be added from there, or just add the current administrator user.

Reporting service configuration

Click Next on the Reporting Services Configuration, same goes to Error Reporting and the Installation Configuration Rules. And finally, click Install at the Ready to Install step, and it will be a good long waiting game.

Installation completed
