Step 2: Run the Setup

Notes: Notice the revised installer.  It resembles the installer for SQL Server 2008.  The installer seems more intelligent then previous versions in that it can better detect missing dependencies and configure Windows 2008 Server Roles for the Administrator.

The Installation Guide Option is a link to an MSDN Article.

Step 5: Choose Standalone to create a development or demonstration environment.

Notes:

Standalone should only be considered for development and / or demonstration purposes. A Standalone Install is not recommended for production installations because additional servers cannot be added to the installation at a later date.  Furthermore, the SQL Server 2008 installed by the Standalone Installation has been constrained which make it less than ideal for most production deployments.

Server Farm if this option is chosen the installer requires a domain controller and domain based service accounts to be used for the installation. The installer will recognize the use of local accounts and prevent the installation process from continuing any further.

Note: The error message displayed above will be shown if you have selected the Server Farm option and have specified a local server account. For a server farm installation, service accounts are expected to be domain accounts.
