  • To troubleshoot the issue, try the following steps:
    1. Uninstall the existing SQL Server 2008 and all the components from the control panel. Remember to backup the user databases if any  before uninstalling SQL Server.
    2. Backup the registry.
    3. Delete the following keys in regedit:
    --HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server
    --HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSSQLServer
    4.  Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall  and delete all the sub-keys referencing SQL Server.
    5.  Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services and delete all the keys referencing SQL Server.
    6.  Rename all the SQL Server folders in the computer.
    7.  Download and install Windows Cleanup Utility:
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=290301
    Run the utility and remove any SQL Server components that you find.
