SQL Media Preparation

Before FineBuild can be used, the following items must be downloaded and placed in specified folders.
  • SQL Server Install Media
  • Mandatory Pre-Requisite media for the SQL version and edition being installed
  • Optional Upgrades to SQL Install Media
  • Optional SQL Service Pack (SP) and Cumulative Update (CU)
  • Optional Microsoft and Community components

Click on the relevant link below for details of setting up the install media for the SQL Server version and edition to be installed.

If you need to copy information from an .ISO file, then Pismo File Mount provides a virtual DVD drive that can help when doing this work.

Also see SQL Media Alternative Folder Names for how to use different names for the FineBuild install media folders.
