    2. From the Start Menu, open Internet Explorer.

    3. Paste one of the following URLs into the address bar for the version you want to use, then press Enter. All versions are compatible with Windows Server 2008 and 2012.

    4. Scroll down and click Run to begin the download of SQL Server.

    5. Click Yes to begin the install.

    6. Click New installation or add features to an existing installation.

    7. Agree to the terms for SQL Server, and proceed with the rest of the steps in the install wizard.

    8. During the wizard, make sure you perform the following steps:

    • When you get to the section for Server Configuration, make sure to toggle SQL Server Browser to Automatic.
    • When you get to the section for Database Engine Configuration, select Mixed Mode for authentication, and enter a master password for your SQL Server install.
