Install the prereq’s
Continue installation after restart
You will first get this “error” message… you must restart before you can continue installation.
I installed as a standalone the first time, but I got a lot of errors and problems so I uninstalled SP again. Installed as a Complete this time
Launch the Config Wizard
Create a new Server farm
Specify sql db and farm admin account
Ended up with a Configuration failed and that a restart was necessary. Did that (this because I had upgraded my SQL express to R2 during setup)
Now let the fun begin!
