Case One:

I have Laptop, I need to format and I have Windows Server 2003, need to install the AX 2009 over it.

Well in this case first Install the Windows Server 2003. Change the computer/server name to “AX2009” Once you installation is done and you see the computer name is “AX2009”, go to run and type dcpromo to create the AD on the same system, since AX 2009 need AD for authentication.

Type domain name as as FQDN or normal

If this not support, try to put on your internet connection via dongle. or if you LAN then it would be a great thing just have static IP.

Now once its done with AD for user Administrator  you need to input some complex password like p@ssw0rd.

Now you can enter the laptop or server with domainuser.
In your case it should be corpadministrator or daxadminadministrator and the password you chose.

Now if all things are well and if you are able to get into the desktop view, now install the SQL 2003 or SQL 2008 R2.

Once done Install the AX 2009 with Microsoft AX 2009 Install documents.
