Installation Type

Use the Installation Type page of the SQL Server Installation Wizard to specify whether to install a new instance of SQL Server 2008, or add features to an existing instance.

Select the radio button that specifies your choice:

  • Perform a new installation of SQL Server 2008

  • Add features to an existing instance of SQL Server 2008

    If you select the option to add features to an existing instance, use the drop-down list to select the instance of SQL Server to update.

You can only add the SysPrep supported features—Database Engine and Reporting Services—to a prepared image of SQL Server. Other features that are not supported by SysPrep can be added after the prepared instance is completed.

Note   You cannot add features to a failover cluster instance after it is installed. To add SQL Server features to an existing failover cluster, you must perform a new installation to install a separate instance of SQL Server.
