I've downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 from this link:
and I've run the executable and opened SQL Server Installation Center. When I click "New Installation or add features to an existing installation", I'm prompted to Browse for SQL Server 2008 R2 Installation Media. But all I have is the file called SQLServer2008R2SP2-KB2630458-x64-ENU.exe, which I got from the download. Am I missing something?

This is valid for six months
