I have been going through and looking at all of the options listed via google for the better part of the day. No matter how I try to run this, whether initially from the straight GUI interface, using a command line option with QS or Q set or from command line without the Q/QS so it goes through the gui I always get to the same spot but can go no further - would be pulling my hair out if any was left!

The latest Command line used is: Command line entry

SQL SErver Prompt - Feature Selection

I have one complete instance installed. It was setup using all the default values. I am simply attempting to add a new instance (SQL, AS, IS, RS) as named instance with name of SQL2014.. This is all getting installed locally on my PC

    This doesn't look to be the setup.exe from the full SQL Server install media. The folder name (SSDTBI_x86_ENU) in your screen shot suggests this is only SSDT. – Dan Guzman Aug 14 '17 at 21:07
  • It wasn't... Finally got past this by tracking down the original SQL2012 media, uninstalling all versions of SQL Server and Re-installing from the media. – user3117622 Aug 15 '17 at 22:40

You want to make sure you select install new instance

Choose your features, and then under Instance Config you can name your instance

  • And, if these aren't screens you saw, then (as per @DanGuzman 's comment on the question), maybe you're not running the SQL Server 2014 installer. – RDFozz Aug 14 '17 at 21:56
  • It wasn't. Was never getting to the instance configuration screen. System actually kept opening the SQL 2014 version installation process. Had to un-install all versions of SQL I had on the system and start over from scratch with the 2012 media – user3117622 Aug 15 '17 at 22:41
