  • Hi Athar,

    Seems to me you have installed SharePoint in 'stand-alone' mode - meaning it used SQL express edition for the database. You'll you to install in farm mode (choose server type "complete") - for you to use a separate SQL 2008 Server for your installation. Here is a guide that may help you.

    Hope that helps!
