SQL SERVER – Video – Step by Step Installation of SQL Server 2012

SQL Server 2012 launched on March 7, 2012.

SQL Server 2012 was available on April 1, 2012 for General Availability.

Recently I have received quite a few queries that they are facing issues with SQL Server 2012 installation. I have tried to solve quite a few problems and I figured out really there is no big problem but most of the problem are faced by people who are attempting to install it first time and have no previous experience about installing SQL Server. I decided to create a quick video with voice instruction regarding how to install SQL Server 2012. It is 3 minute long video and if you are installing SQL Server 2012, you can play this video on another machine and follow the steps.

I have attempted default installation of the SQL Server. However, there are few additional option one can consider as well – collation, default installation folder, and few other server related configurations.

Here are few resources related to SQL Server 2012 I have blogged earlier.

    • Hi there,
      When I’m trying to install MSSQLServer2012 SP1on to Win7OS I’m getting the error “Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation”. Can please guide me what to do get successful installation.

  1. Dear Pinal,
    Can you tell me what I must do if installation blocks at Install_DotNetKB2544514_Cpu64_Action? I’ve looked on the Internet and it should have something to do with .NET Framework 4, but the last update (KB 2544514) is installed on my computer.
