Error: Feature Service requires a registered database

Hopefully a pretty straightforward one...

There are two issues really.
First is described in point 6. where i was unable to uncheck the 'Feature Access' option, and only publish a map service, is this how locally saved point feature classes work?

Second, is how do i register locally saved feature class. Saved in c:\TestData\TestData.gdb? I can save and register the folder location OK, but having no database platform such as SQL Server installed - how can this step be performed?
Can you help me with what am i missing from the install guide?

1. Installed and licensed ArcGIS Server 10.1 (windows) OK.
2. Login to ArcGIS Server Manager OK.
3. ArcMap 10.1 Desktop create a simple point layer held in locally saved feature class, within a file geodatabase OK.
4. ArcMap Admin connection to Server OK.
5. Publish via File > Save As...Service throws error based on the fact that the layer's data source must be registered.
6. Understand that Feature Services must be registered with server, so try to uncheck the 'Feature Access' option but this is not possible (going back to step 5. and within the Publish > Capabilities window see pic1.png)

I have not installed webadaptor or SDE on my local machine...yet.

Look forward to hearing from you.
