Installing MOSS on Windows Server 2008 VPC Part III

This is part III of the series.  In this post I will provide the steps to install MOSS on Windows Server 2008 by Splitstream.

When I ran the MOSS Setup I got the following message.


Windows Server 2008 does not support MOSS without SP1.  Either you can download the SP1 Version of MOSS or you can make splitstream easily.  Follow the steps given below.

1. Get both Service Pack 1 of MOSS and WSS 3.0 and rename the files to some easy names. Open the command prompt and navigate to the location.  In my case files on placed on desktop
