I'm trying to install SQL Server 2012 R2 (64 bit) on a fresh install of Windows 2012 (64 bit), but when it asks for the location of the installation media, I'm stumped.
I run the installer, it extracts all the files & starts the installation process. It copies setup files for a minute or two, then just quits. I presume that's normal?
Then I run the 'SQL Server Installation Centre' and try the 'New Server Stand Alone' option. The first thing it asks is where the installation media is located. I have no idea where the files were placed, if even it they were extracted properly.
What am I missing?
