I am installing SQL Server 2008 R2 64 bit onto a Windows 2008 R2 64bit OS and receive an installation rule message that 64 bit process (Not applicable) and 64-bit operating systme (not applicable).  I check the OS install on my computer and it says System Type 64 bit Operating System.  Do you know why I would be receiving this message?  Or does it has something to do with Sharepoint not been installed on the Server?

Martin thanks for your respond but I went pass the message and finished the install.  When I check programs install it says SQL 2008 R2 64 bit, so I am not sure what the message meant.

Well, then you can always look at the summary*.txt files. Typicall location for them is: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log"

Maybe they can give you a clue to what was going on.

As you seem to have managed to get SQL Server installed, I don't think that you have a problem...  You wouldn't have been able to proceed the install if your machine didn't pass all requirements.

I believe that he is referring to this (see attached screen shot). I was wondering about it myself (which is how I found this thread).

It is on the rules page of the setup sequence.
