Yes I know we can install instances of SQL side by side. 
However, if I do (esp. with SQL 2012), it raise an error "error 0x84bc06aa"
without any more information. 

Researching, found that its about the "SQL 2012 Native Client" (Not the SQl
Server Engine). It needs to be uninstalled before proceeding.
(Chk -

And yes - The instance names are different. SO that's not an issue.

Yes, you can install SQL 2014 on a machine that has SQL 2012, BUT you can't
install SQL 2014 with Default instance if SQL 2012 is installed with default

Then you need to install SQL 2014 with an instance.

I can have a lot of versions of SQL installed but you have to have different
instances for all version.
e.g. I have 2012, 2014 and 2016 installed on ny machine BUT they have all
different instances.
My 2012 version is localhost\SQL12 and the 2014 version localhost\SQL14 and
localhost\SQL16 for the 2016 version.

So all comes down to how u install it and what is installed there before.

I am trying to install SQL 2014 as part of my Burn Package. However, the
installation fails with error "error 0x84bc06aa installing sql server 2014"


Upon searching, I found that people say SQL 2014 cannot be installed if SQL
2012 Native Client is already installed on the machines. However, I NEED TO
get 2014 installed in this scenario.


Is there any way out ?
