Running - Server 2008, SQL 2008, MOSS 2007 SP1

One of the joys of owning your own business is every year in December you decide that you should buy some new business toys. Kind of like a second Christmas. One of the new toys we bought this year was a new server. It is an AMD X2 6000 (3 GHz) with 4 GB of RAM. It is actually a desktop class machine that we use as a server. We actually have 3 of them in this place. They have some fancy Antec case that keeps them from making any noise at all. And since one of them is under my desk that is nice. True server class hardware makes way too much noise for me. Oh yeah, and did I mention the server is like $800. If you want to check it out for yourself look at AlphaPCStore and build your own AMD. I have 3 of these things and they rock.

Anyway the server was slated to run Windows Server 2003 with Virtual Server. (Boring) So instead I decided to load up Windows Server 2008 RC1, SQL Server 2008 CTP, and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 with SP1. I would like to tell you that it was some big long complicated story…. But it wasn't. Pretty straightforward to do. So I am going to beat on it for a couple more days. If all continues to look good then you can look forward to a post or two on how to set it up. I am just going to format the box and do it all again. Should be fun.

Did you have to slipstream the service pack to get the install to work?

Thanks

Dave

Hi, did you have to slipstream the SP due to it refusing to install on Windows Server 2008?

Thanks.

You will need to slip stream SP1 for this to install.  Without it, the installer will not run.  Slipstreaming is pretty easy to do.  You copy the contents of the cd to a hd location (either the x64 or x86 directory depending if you are 64 bit or not).  Download the Service Pack and run it with the /extract switch to anothe location on your hard drive.  You then copy the contents of the extracted folder into the upgrades folder of the MOSS copy above, and the install should start fine.

Thanks for your informative post, Vinny.  It was a big help!

If you want to skip a step, you can extract SP1 straight into the x86/Updates folder (or x64/Updates folder if appropriate).

Cheers!
