We got a Share Point 2010 farm here on my company but we were victims of a ramsonware and lost a server. I was incubated of prepare a new VM and reinstall the SP (I never had any kind of contact with SP installation).
I downloaded the SharePoint Foundation 2010 from Microsoft and installed it (I chose "Server-Farm" option and then "Complete").
After it, on the wizard, I connected to our SP config database, chose a Passphrase. On Advanced Settings I marked "Use this machine to host the web site".
... Finally I got this error message.
I found up on config database that previous SP installation was on 14.0.7015.1000. I downloaded this specific patch but it did not affect my SP 'cause it was on a newer version. Can I download a specific SP version somewhere? And... Is this my problem or I'm losing my time?
Used query: SELECT TOP 1000 [VersionId] ,[Version] ,[Id] ,[UserName] ,[TimeStamp] ,[FinalizeTimeStamp] ,[Mode] ,[ModeStack] ,[Updates] ,[Notes] FROM [SPServer2010_Config].[dbo].[Versions]
I got a Windows Server 2012 R2 as a database server and I'm trying to install the SP on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (same operating system used on the old infected machine).
With THIS link - provided by @James Grizzle - I was able to install the right version, but the error persists. Trying to overcome the situation I installed a new instance o Share Point, with a new config database, and I'm trying to change the config database to the original one. Is it possible? Setting the content db only seems not to be enough.
