SQL SERVER - Video - Step by Step Installation of SQL Server 2012 ss2012logo

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.

  • 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.

    • The error is caused by the Print Spooler service being disabled per our security requirements.

      We have discovered that if the *Print Spooler Service* is stopped or
      disabled in Windows Server 2012 R2, the color profiles will not load
      properly and Color Management will be blank. If the color profiles are
      unable to load, then when Server Manager is trying to load them to
      display the bitmap icon, it returns a null and causes Server Manager to
      crash. This issue only seems to occur in Windows Server 2012 R2 and not
      Windows Server 2012.
