All is not lost though, all you need to do is to slip stream the SP2 updates to the MOSS 2007 Setup. Here’s a nice how to on how to do that.

Once you slipstream the SP2 updates, you would be able to continue with the installation with out the above error.

Installation Recommendation for a fresh SharePoint Server

To keep all files in a SharePoint installation up-to-date, the following sequence is recommended.

  1. Service Pack 2 for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
  2. Service Pack 2 for Office SharePoint Server 2007
  3. April Cumulative Update package for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
  4. April Cumulative Update package for Office SharePoint Server 2007

Please note: Start from April Cumulative Update, the packages will no longer install on a farm without a service pack installed. You must have installed either Service Pack 1 (SP1) or SP2 prior to the installation of the cumulative updates.

After applying the preceding updates, run the SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard or “psconfig –cmd upgrade –inplace b2b -wait” in command line. This needs to be done on every server in the farm with SharePoint installed. 

The version of content databases should be 12.0.6504.5000 after successfully applying these updates.

As far as configuration is concerned, it is a brilliant idea to install MOSS 2007 on Windows 2008 R2. However, I have got many complaints from people about issues after the installation. The common problem is being the system getting frozen. arizona manufactured homes for sale
