I am trying to install the SDL Tridion 2013 SP1 on a Windows 7 SP1 machine. I am able to create the CM and CD Databases successfully through PowerShell, however, when I start installing Content Manager, it says the OS is not supported. I verified the list of supported OS, please refer below screen shots. Is it something very basic I am missing out there. Any help will be appreciated.

Supported OS as in the Pre-Requisite Manual:

My Windows (I checked and all Windows Updates are up to date):

The Error while executing CM setup:

Tridion Content Manager Server is not supported on Windows 7, only on a Windows Server OS. The list of supported OS you're looking at is for the Tridion Content Manager Client (Content Manager Explorer and Experience Manager).
