I am installing SQL Server 2008 and for the collation i want to choose Latin1_General_CI_AS but on the drop down I don't have that option (see attached document).  How can i determine which selection will give me Latin1_General_CI_AS.

When you are up to step Server Configuration at the left, to to the 2nd tab Collation on the right

Click Customize against Database Engine

Click the top option "Windows.."

In the list, drop down to "Latin1_General"

CI = leave Case-sensitive unticked
AS = tick Ascent-sensitive

Click OK
