SQL Server Installation 2008 r2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    i am trying to install SQl Server 2008 R2 enterprise edition on my laptop. i have not installed sql server ever and this wil be my first time. So i would love to get some help on this in this forum.

    I have a I5 processor  8 gb RAM  500 gb HD. 

    I have Windows 7 ultimate version.

    I would like to install the 2008 server R2 as i would like to use the BI module of SQl server ( SSAS, IS , RS).

    I have access to the microsoft software and also which version should i be using to install. I would like to install the 32 bit not the 64 bit.

    could someone help whether the BI module is only available in R2 or will it be available on 2008.

    Also is it a quick installation.

    Thanks you all for your help in advance

    Best

    Abraham

    SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition is not supported on client operating systems like Windows 7. Try Developer Edition instead.

  • Hi Abraham,


    As Alberto mentioned, SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise Edition is not supported on your operation system, please try another edition.

    For Business intelligence it was firstly released in SQL Server 2005. So both of the SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 contains the BI module.
