(Note - I have planned to install separate instance for CAS & Primary Site on the servers separately, so if you have a single server for database you can created a default instance & a named instance for CAS & Primary sites respectively. Do take care about the SQL ports they needs to be separate for both the instances like if CAS instance is using 1433 the Primary Site instance must use 1434 or any other port.)

Check the Disk space requirements (only if you are concerned about it :)) & click on next to continue:-
