Installing a stand-alone SQL Server 2017 instance step by step

Undoubtedly, many of us have the task of installing a new stand-alone SQL Server instance which includes just the database engine service.

Today's post is going to outline the process to install a basic stand-alone SQL Server 2017 instance. This process is just a basic guideline and not a rule for each installation, because I fully understand that every environment is different and needs a customized installation to meet very specific requirements.
