            SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Evaluation is available as an image file that contains X86, X64 and IA64 installatable versions. You can use this image to burn your own DVD.

            Step 1: Click the following link to download the file.


            Step 2: Using your DVD-burning software, select the options to burn a DVD from an .ISO image. When you are prompted for a file to use, select the image file that you downloaded. After burning the DVD, locate and double-click Setup.exe on the DVD to begin the installation.

            Step 3: Follow the installation instructions provided in the Readme.


          You may also download a self-extracting executable (EXE) that is specific for X86, X64 or IA64. These executables do not support X86 installations on 64 -bit versions of Windows. Use the DVD image for X86 installations on 64-bit versions of Windows (IA64 is not supported).
