    This message is by default and you can ignore it.

    MS Sql Server 2008 R2 is supported for Windows 2008 R2. Just After the installation, when you do the kernel upgrade this warning should go away.

    However, for Windows 2008 R2 you should go for modified kernel DVD procedure.

    1480785 Creating a Modified Windows Kernel DVD

    PAM + SAP Notes which are suggested in the 'Installation Guide' are sufficient to verify the compatibility.

      > Why we sholud go for modified kernel DVD procedure on windows server operaating system ?

      It's not about 'windows' server, but for 'windows 2008 R2' server.

      Kernel files included in the 'Installation Media' are by default the old/low patch level not released fully compatible with 'new platforms' like 2008 R2 - which may cause some problems 'during' installation as well.

      So, using modified kernel DVD you get two advantages -

      1. You are able to avoid 'those' problems during installation.

      2. You don't have to go for an explicit kernel upgrade just after the installation.
