    Error while trying to install SQL Sever 2012

    Afternoon Everyone

    This is th error that I am getting when I try to install MS SQL Server 2012 on a Windows Server 2008 machine.

    The operating system on this computer does not meet the minimum requirements for SQL Server 2012. For Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008 operating systems, Service pack 2 or later is required. For windows 7 or windows server 2008 R2, Service pack 1 or later is required. For more information, see Hardware and software requirements for installing SQL Server 2012 at***

    Please help

    Thanx in advance

    So your machine have Windows Server 2008 version right?
    Have you checked the service pack of your Windows server. I guess it will be Service Pack 1. Upgraded to Service pack 2. You can freely download the service pack 2 in the Microsoft website.
    Once you installed the Service Pack 2 you are good to install the SQL Server.
