I am attempting to install SQL Server 2008 R2 version
10.50.4000 on a virtual machine running Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2.
When I try to install SQL Server, I get an error that, when I look it up, says I need to install and configure .NET Framework 3.5 first.
When I try to install via add features, it fails without telling my why, and I have to restart the server.
When I try to install manually, it says I have to use the installer.
When I try to install via PowerShell (Import-Module ServerManager and Add-WindowsFeature as-net-framework), I get the following error:
Add-WindowsFeature : Installation of [.NET Framework 3.5.1 Features] .NET Framework 3.5.1 failed. The server needs to b e restarted to undo the changes. At line:1 char:19 + Add-WindowsFeature <<<< as-net-framework + CategoryInfo : OperationStopped: (:) [Add-WindowsFeature], Exception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : FeatureMessageDetail,Microsoft.Windows.ServerManager.Commands.AddWindowsFeatureCommand
There has been more failed attempts, but I can't remember all that I have done that has failed, I have had people breathing down my neck all day, so I skipped the recording what I have tried step in the name of speed... Any help would be appreciated.
