When I am trying to install a new instance of SQL server 2012 on my server, I get the following error message when I try to run the iso (before any gui appears):
The operating system on this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for SQL Server 2012. For Windows Vista or Server 2008 operating systems, Service Pack 2 or later is required. For Windows 7 or Windows Serer 2008 R2, Service Pack 1 or later is required. For more information, see Hardware and Software Requirements for installing SQL Server 2012 at:
The server is virtual, running under hyper-v with 4GB static ram, and 2 processor cores. The server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise SP1 x64. Every drive has more than 20GB RAM. I have rebooted the server to see if that changes the situation and it doesn't.
As for the other installation requirements:
- .net 3.5.1 feature is installed
- Powershell 2.0 is installed
The strangest part in all of this, is that the server already has instances of SQL Server 2012 running. These instances were installed using the same iso that is being used to attempt this new install.
