I installed Windows 8 on my laptop and I'm going through installing my software. I just installed SQL Server 2008 R2, but none of the logon information I supplied will allow me to logon. I'm not sure what the problem is. I tried using Windows authentication and SQL Authentication. I didn't have this problem installing on Windows 7. Has anyone else gone through this?
