  • Are you sure you have SQL 2005 and not 2008? If yes, please use the following syntax

    Start /wait <CD or DVD Drive>\setup.exe /qb REMOVE=SQL_Engine,Client_Components INSTANCENAME=<InstanceName>

    Please refer to the section To remove a default, stand-alone installation of SQL Server 2005 from the command prompt
