Installing SQL 2005 workgroup from a means 'other' than a cdrom
So the other night I installed SQL 2005 workgroup on my R2 box and I had copied the cdroms up to the server and installed from there. When I did that, at the end of 'cdrom 1' I got this error.
But see it wasn't really an error, it was expecting the second cdrom. So I started up the setup.exe from the folder of cdrom 2 and if I remember right it was "client components" was on cdrom 2 that I checked to install and the install finished up without a hitch.
"Under Client Components, click Management Tools, and then click Entire feature will be installed on local hard drive. Click Next to continue, and then complete the wizard."
So if you have a dvd or you download the files to your server and don't use the cdrom... just pick it up where it left off and finish the install.
