You can install a new network card (control panel / hardware). I don't know the exact sequence, but here is what you do: select add hardware in control panel, act like you already put it in your machine, say you want to install manually, and then select network adapter/microsoft, you'll find a loopback adapter there, install it as if it's a real network card. Give it an address (normally, it's in the 169.x.x.x range, keep it there). Put the ip address with any name you like (but fully qualified, like mymachine) on top in your host file, for example mydbserver and install your database. Since it is the last network card installed, and it's on top in your host file, the DB will install as if running on this machine.
