    • Select ‘Custom’ and click ‘Next’.
    • ‘Choose destination location’ > leave everything on default and hit ‘Next’.
    • ‘Select features’ > make sure everything is checked and hit ‘Next’.
    • Choose ‘Install new SQL Server Express 2014 instance’.
      Change the name of the instance to something else, for example ‘SQLEXPRESS14BS2′. It’s important you change the name, othewise you’ll end up the we same error.
