Installing SQL 2008 on Windows 2008 R2
More and more I find myself needing to install SQL 2008 on Windows 2008 R2. The problem is that there is a compatibility issue with Server 2008 R2 that requires jumping through hoops to install SQL Server 2008. For me, the easiest solution is to build new patched installation media. Just follow the instructions starting at Procedure 2: Create a merged drop.
