My system configuration is as follows:

Microsoft Windows XP, Version 2002, Service Pack 3
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU
T7250 @2.00GHz
1.99GHz, 1.95 GB of RAM

I want to install sql server enterprize edition. (I know that some of you will have the concern as why I am installing Enterprise edition on this comp but this is what my client wants and I can't do anything .) This gives a warning that there is some hardware incompatibility. The computer is behind firewall.


Eventhough I ignore this error, I install this. But when I try to find out sqlserver and sqlagent services then those are missing.

Is this an issue because of firewall or hardware compatibility.

Following are the requirements for enterprise edition:
Processor - 600MHz Pentium III– compatible or faster processor; 1GHz or faster processor recommended Memory - 512MB of RAM or more; 1GB or more recommended

Operating system- Microsoft Windows 2000 Server with SP4 or newer; Windows
2000 Professional Edition with SP4 or newer; Windows XP with SP2 or newer;
Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition, or Datacenter Edition
with SP1 or newer; Windows Small Business Server 2003 with SP1 or newer

Sorry to disappoint you, but on XP you will only be able to install the workstation components. You need a server OS to install enterprise edition.

If your client needs enterprise functionality, you will have to use developer edition, but even then if this is to be used as production box. you will need to install a server OS, get enterprise on it and licensed.

You have not mention which sql server enterprise edition are you installing.... 2000,2005, or 2008?

You are getting correct error "Hardware compatability".

sql 2005 EE do not support winxp refer link below:

erm, have to disagree with you there lucky, i just tried to install it on a laptop with xp pro, went through the installation, all options were grayed out except for workstation components.

I would suggest that you read the link that mascot kindly provided...

Yes Silverfox,

There is a book titled "MCTS Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Implementation and Maintenance Study Guide Exam 70-431 (2006)". Here TABLE 1 . 3
"Developer/Standard/Enterprise Edition Requirements" says that 32 bit sql server 2005 Express edition can be installed on Windows XP with SP2 or newer. This created confusion.

The link provided by mascot says that

"Because Windows XP Service Pack 3 (SP3) was released after this documentation set was published, the operating system information on this page is not fully up to date at this time. SQL Server 2005 is supported on Windows XP SP3 (except for Enterprise Edition)."

Thanks lucky for clarifying that enterprise cannot be installed on XP.
