Error Installing Second SQL Instance

    Question

  • I am trying to install a second instance on my 2008 R2 server running SQL 2008 R2.  During setup, Im getting this error:

    Rule "Consistency validation for SQL Server registry keys" failed.

    The SQL Server registry keys from a prior installation cannot be modified.  To continue, see SQL Server Setup documentation about how to fix registry keys.

    Any idea how to fix this?  I checked the logs and it stops at this point:
