When I was starting with rails I had the same trouble, first I didn’t have mysql

then I had to add

gem “mysql2”

to my Gemfile and the run bundle install

after that everything worked…

PD: I use ubuntu… I’m not sure how it works in windows, maybe railsinstaller install mysql2, I haven’t tried it yet

Here, I'm already pass for it.

you have to install the mysql gem not the mysql2 gem.

mysql2 gem don't work on Windows 7 only on Windows XP.

but using mysql will be the same thing...

Please read the following article:

Instructions are the same except change to mysql2

You will need to install the gem *before* adding it to the Gemfile
since it requires configuration options (--with-mysql...)

HTH,
