Having jumped through a hundred hoops, it *appears* that I have finally installed SP2010 on Win7.
Now I run the products config wizard and I am asked...
Connect to an existing farm or create a new server farm.
Well I have no existing so I guess my only option is to create a new one.
I specify the database server (local install of sql 2008 r2 already installed) and the username (mine (admin)) that should be used. Then I get the error that the account specified is a local account and this should only be used for stand alone mode.
Well yep, this is a stand alone box and I want a stand alone install but no part of the setup/config has offered me that choice.
What am I doing wrong?
