I am attempting to install SQL Server Denali CTP3 as an instance on Window 7 SP1 that has SQL 2008 R2 Workgroup as the default instance.
When the install gets to the point of "SqlEngineDBStartConfigAction_install_configrc_Cpu32" a dialog appears with the message "The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.".
If I click OK then the install completes but SQL Denali does not start.
If I attempt to start the instance of Denali an error appears in the windows application event log:
FCB::Open failed: Could not open file e:\sql11_main_t.obj.x86fre\sql\mkmastr\databases\objfre\i386\MSDBData.mdf for file number 1. OS error: 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).
My database files are loctated in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.DENALI\MSSQL\DATA
I installed from D:\ISO\SQL Denali\SQLFULL_x86_ENU
I have uninstalled and re-installed and this has happened both the on the original and the re-install.
Any thoughts as to why the paths are being set to E: drive?
