I installed a 90 day Eval version of SQL Server 2008 SP2 downloaded from Microsoft. I ran ths installation and it all went thru without any errors. Then i opened the Configuration menu to see if the server needs to be started. There were no entries in the server list. So i unistalled all the SQL Server items. I again ran the 'SQLServer2008SP2-KB2285068-x86-ENU.exe' file. It again gave me the Landing page. I clicked on Install new instance. It now asks me for installation media folder. Apparently the EXE extracts into some temporary folder which is deleted as soon as the Landing page is created. So i dont have a installation media folder to point to.
Any idea how i can overcome this ?
