It is, strangely enough, during this part of the installation process where the installer installs
SQL Server 2008 Express, creating the necessary essential storage location and structure

“WHERE IS THE SQL EXPRESS LOCATION?”
The location of the SQL Server 2008 Express files is %Program Files%\Common Files\Microsoft
Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\Data\MSSQL10.SHAREPOINT\MSSQL\DATA, if you are
eager to check it yourself. We’ll be revisiting it later when we check to see what databases are added
after the SharePoint installation.
