I'm trying to add an additional instance to MS SQL Server 2008 R2 SP2 (10.50. 4000.0) on Windows SBS 2011 Standart SP1. But clicking on any option (except help links) in the Installation Center does nothing. There's only a quickly flashing cmd window and log files with the following strings:

Open in new window

Launching setup.exe from media source works but it only lets upgrading existing instances which I've already done.
What is wrong?
Thank you.

You have already install SQL Server 2008 R2

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\SQLServer2008R2\setup.exe

Nope..  You have to run Setup again to install Second instance..

See here..  Second one has a page-by-page on how to do it..

Turns out I used a wrong media source which was only an upgrade to SP2, not a full installation.
