Installing SQL Server 2008R2 on SBS 2008 Standard

SBS Server Standard 2008 has SQL Server Management Studio Express tools on it.
When installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard one of the checks was for the above and would not let you pass until this was removed. My approach was to uninstall SSMS Express. Checks then passed.

As SBS is using SBSMonitoring as a database, websites suggest installing SQL Server as a new instance. I installed it as SQL2008 instance. SUCCESS.
