I downloaded the SAP NetWeaver 7.0 ABAP Trial (2 files with 1,2 GB each) and tried to install it on a VMware virtual PC running Windows 2k3 Server Standard Edition (plain install) with 1 GB RAM. This virtual PC matches all requirements.
The installation stalls at the step
"Configuring database. This step may take up to 2 hours. - Going to admin mode" at 47 %.
There is no CPU or HDD activity and this step already took about 4-5 hours.
There is no error message, it just takes so f***ing long. Am I doing something wrong? Are there any hints what to do? Or should I simply wait to eternity?
