There are a few things you can do here, you can either either install MSDE (which should be included) or download SQL Express, install that then boint your BES install to the MSDE/SQL instance. MSDE is probably the easiest setup though:

Ok I guess what I'm saying is that it should have installed what it needs (MSDE) during the process. Since that's apparently not the case, do this:

To keep the instructions a little shorter I'm going to write based on an MSDE setup as it will get you up and running quickly with minimal configuration.

1. Download & extract MSDE (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=413744d1-a0bc-479f-bafa-e4b278eb9147&DisplayLang=en)

2. Edit the setup.ini file with notepad and overwrite what's there with the following:
    [Options]
    SECURITYMODE=Windows
    SAPWD="password"
    DISABLENETWORKPROTOCOLS=0
    INSTANCENAME="BES"

3. Launch & complete the MSDE setup

4. Re-run the BES install and when you get to the screen that asks you about SQL, there should be a field that allows you to put in a server name. Type in the hostname of the server, say BES_Server01 for example then the SQL instance name. So, you would want to do: BES_Server01\BES

5. Click next & proceed w/ the setup and elt me know ow it goes.
