Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 Install problem

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi all

I just installed Windows Server 2008 Standard SP2 on a Dell T710 server.  I also am trying to install SQL Server 2008 Standard on the server.  I keep getting an error that it requires .net framework 3.5 prior to installation.  I have installed .net framework 3.5 sp 1, several times.  I installed Windows installer 4.5 and I am still getting the problem.  I know this is a problem because I have been researching it.  But nothing I find seems to help.  I am desperate, please help.
