The installation guide I choose is:

It is almost perfect, however there are several thing you need check druing or after installation

1. If you see warning about SQL server checking area, dont forget to go to SQL server, add SCCM console computer as new user on SQL database. To do it you need use SQL management studio, users, new, domain-name\computername$, that way you can add computer name as a new user.

2. If you are using SQL 12 as the database, the report function wont work(when you click Create Report under Monitoring\ Overview\Reporting\Reports, you will get error Could not find an installed Reporting Services point. Verify the site role is installed and accesible.".


You need upgrade your SCCM 12 into SCCM 12 SP1. Instructions are here:

Remember, the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows® 8 is over 3G. So you better download it before you plan to install SCCM. SP1 update package is about 900Mb, you need download it as well.

3. Also in the installation guide it mentioned to install SQL cumulative updates, you better do it.
