So, I just got a new machine at work with Windows 7 on it and I'm having issues installing SQL Server 2005 on it. I know, by default, it won't install; but, with Service Pack 3, it will. However, I cannot even get SQL Server on the machine so I can install service pack 3. All the options to install a SQL Instance on my machine are greyed out from the installation CD. I did get the client tools installed like Management Studio.
How do I get SQL Server 2005 installed on my Windows 7 machine?
