Hi!

I have a server running SBS 2011 with the premium add-on.  I need to create a separate SQL instance on my server for an app I'm installing.

Is this in agreement with the license terms (I'm having trouble decoding the licensing terms), and how would I do this?  I did an "add/remove" on SQL 2008 64 bit, selected Add, and it prompts me for the media.  I don't have a DVD on this server, but have copied the entire DVD contents to a directory on the drive. Pointing the browse window to the media results in "d:\ is not a valid installation folder."  Directing this browse window to the actual DVD on a share off another server results in the same message.

And a side question-- I have two entries in my start menu-- One says "Microsoft SQL Server
2008" with only "SQL Server Installation Center (64-bit)" under it, and another that says "Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2" with all the tools.  Why?

I would greatly appreciate all assistance and direction!!  TIA!
