    Is it possible to use Small Business Server 2008 Premium to install only SQL Server 2008 and nothing else onto a Windows 7 PC?

    Thanks

    You don't install SQL via a server onto a PC.
    If you need SQL on the PC, install it there. If it is a client server database, install SQL on the server.

    What are you attempting to do?

    cheers, Paul

    I don't believe it is possible. The install process that comes with SBS expects to do the SBS install first and then install SQL Server 2008. I would suggest you install the Express version of SQL Server 2008 - it's a free download from Microsoft. And there isn't that much difference between the two - SBS includes the workgroup version of SQL Server 2008.

    Here's a link to compare the various SQL Server editions - Compare Edition Features. Here's a link to download the free express edition - SQL Server Express 2008 Download.
