    Hi @Horacy Piguła

    Windows 11 uses different block sizes for disc alignment (32k) which aren't supported by SQL Server.

    Here is a work aroun: Troubleshoot errors related to system disk sector size greater than 4 KB

    If it doesn't help, please post error log.

    The location by default is: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\140\Setup Bootstrap\Log

    There is a summary.txt file and many subfolders created every time the Installation wizard is started. In those subfolders, we can find a Detail.txt file.

    Best regards,

    Cosmog Hong
