  • Hi AsrielAshish,


    From your description, I understand that you failed to install SQL Server 2014. If anything is misunderstood, please let me know.


    .NET 3.5 SP1 is a requirement for SQL Server 2014, please check whether you have installed .NET 3.5 SP1 in your machine. If not, you could download .NET 3.5 SP1 via the following link and then install it. After that try to reinstall SQL Server. Other system configurations you described meet requirements to install SQL Server 2014.


    Besides, What's edition of SQL Server 2014 do you install? SQL Server Enterprise, SQL Server Business Intelligence and SQL Server Web are not allowed to installed in Windows 7 Ultimate.


    Finally, Could you please provide us more details of the setup log in Summary_<MachineName>_YYYYMMDD_HHMMss.txt file which is located at %programfiles%\ Microsoft SQL Server\120\Setup Bootstrap\Log\<YYYYMMDD_HHMM>\ . We need the log to analyze.


    Best Regards,

    Emily Fei
