4. Place a check in the box next the .Net Framework 3.5 Features and click Next.

5. Notice there is an error at the top of the screen about specifying an additional source file. This is because the files to install this feature are not installed by default when the operating system is installed. The files should be located on the operating system installation media under “\sources\sxs”. Locate this path, then click Specify an alternate source path at the bottom of the screen and place the path in the provided box. Then, click Install.
