Hi Anil,

   What ever it may be the steps are same. If you want to install DEV and QAS in Windows / SQL server environment means.

Install DEV with the Instance number 00. Fallow the usual installation procedure what you have done before.

After completion of DEV Instance,  For installing second instance QAS, You have to start from SQL installation again. While installing SQL Db Second time for QAS, Select named instance option and give named instance as QAS and then fallow the usual steps.

While installing SAP for QAS at the phase of DB selection you can find two Db's DEV and QAS, Select QAS and continue, At the phase of instance number you can give 01 or 02 what ever you want except what you have given already to DEV.

Fallow common steps and Prerequisites provided by SAP. Rest all the things are same.

I hope it will help you.
