Installing Office Sharepoint Server 2007 on Windows Server 2008
I tried installing MOSS2007 onto my freshly installed Windows Server 2008 machine but unfortunately I received an incompatibility exception, not allowing me to continue installation. This will probably be fixed soon, maybe with a Sharepoint update of some kind, but for now if you want to perform such an installation you'll have to slipstream the Windows Sharepoint Services Service Pack 3 and Office Sharepoint Server Service Pack 1 into the MOSS2007 setup-folder before starting the actual installation. I never had to perform such a slipstream-operation, but using the following screencast it was done within a few minutes. It's all about unpacking the service packs into the (already existing) updates-folder within the setup-folder of MOSS2007. Doing that will cause the installation to continue where it failed before. Easy as that!
I used the screencast just because it is very easy to follow and it only takes 8 minutes or so, but if you know how to extract an installer into a specific folder then you're actually done already.
