          Since you can't point to an existing DB during the install if it is at the correct version, what you need to do is either just use the SQL express DB, let it build, then go into configure-->Services and change the DB information to point to your existing DB.

           

          Or if you have an external DB server, which it sounds like you do, you can just point it to a blank DB on that server, then when the install completes, point it to the existing DB.

           

          Basically, you have to just change the core to point to the DB after install, there is no way to point to an existing DB during the install unless it is a different version DB and is going to do an upgrade.
