In the reporting services configuration page select Reporting Services SharePoint integrated mode
Finally verify all the settings for SQL and then click install once complete open SQL management studio and verify its working. And now its time for us to Install SharePoint 2013
Before moving on to SP setup just want to clarify that I was using an already set domain account with local admin permissions to setup SQL. So you can use the same account to setup SP as the SQL permissions will be applied for that account already. But if you are using a differnt SP account then you will need to setup SQL permissions separately.
Run SharePoint setup from CD, and select install software prerequisites. you need an internet connection for this if not you must download each component and install
The server might reboot in the process so go ahead and wait till the installer has completed- click finish when the installer have completed the installation
