I am getting the following error while installing GP2013 first time on a test machine:
The installation wizard is saying this:
 
"The installation has failed"
 
Event Viewer is showing this:
 
"Login failed for user 'DynamicsGP'. Could not find  a login matching the name provided. [CLIENT: <local machine>]
 
What does it mean? Does the installation process create or expect a SQL login called "DynamicsGP"?

I get the same error even if I do not check "Do not create a data source" option in the installation wizard.

I ended up installing it on different machine. Not sure why I got that error on the first machine.
