I'm trying to install sql server 2008 standard on windows 2003 server R2.
This is in a virtual machine using MS virtual PC 2007.

When I get to Installation Rules in the setup it says
Rule "Operating system supported for edition" failed

This SQL Server edition is not supported on this operating system. See SQL Server boks online for information about supported operating systems for SQL Small Business Server edition.


Don't know where it gets the small business server edition from as I am installing from the iso image
en_sql_server_2008_standard_x86_x64_dvd_x14-88742.iso

System says my OS is
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2
Standard Edition
Service Pack 2

I'm downloading it again as it looks like the image has been updated since I got that one.


Anyone know why it's coming up with this error?

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.

I believe there is a special download for SQL Server 2008 to use with Virtual PC.

Those are images with the product already installed for virtual server or virtual PC.
I want to install the product in virtual PC.

Nope

Doesn't work either - same error.

I have a feeling it might not work in virtual PC and I have to use virtual server instead.
That would be a bit of a pain.

If I'm not mistaken, Virtual PC only allows 32 bit operating systems. You're trying to install a 64 bit SQL Server. Try installing the 32 bit version of SQL Server
