    Would it possible to change the pictures of text, to just actual text?

    Esp as some of the pictures are distorted!

    Great topic, probably well written, just couldn't get over the distorted screenshots :unsure:

    Isn't there a format block/marcro/thingy?

    That was a bit odd.

    Thanks for the write-up. It is a good review of the process.

    I prefer to save the .ini file and call it from a small batch file so that I do not have to type all that stuff at the command line. If I save the config file with the rest of my installation files in the installation folder, I can map a drive to that installation folder, and call the setup executable with a switch that points to the configuration file. For this example, I map a drive V to the installation folder

    echo Installing SQL SERVER 20xx...

    V:\setup.exe /CONFIGURATIONFILE=V:\SQLConfig.ini

    exit

    I name the batchfile InstallSQL.bat, and open a command prompt with RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR option, and traverse to the correct directory/folder, and simply call the batchfile. Takes a little bit of setup, but it will save you keystrokes over time.

    I have to amend my suggestion:

    If you use the batchfile/config file method, you need to include these values in the config file:

    MEDIASOURCE="V:\"

    You used to be able to blend in service packs using the PCUSOURCE switch in the config file, but I think Microsoft is now releasing Service packs alone and as part of an overall install to save on confusion.

    Just submit a correct copy with text in place of pictures the same way you did before with a note saying what the corrections are and they'll take care of it.
