Sqlserver 2008 Installtion error,failed to install databse engine?


  • Hi Ronsql,

    Regarding to the error might be caused by the previous SQL Server installation. I suggest you uninstall the existing SQL Server instance by the following steps. You could refer to this Blog.

    Meanwhile some other programs may prevent installation program from starting the service. I would like to recommend that you stop all other programs temporarily, especially Anti-Virus program.

    Moreover please do not copy installation files, try to install from the original installation media.
    There is a similar thread as yours, please refer to here.

    For more investigation, please post the SQL error log for further troubleshooting.

    Regards, Amber zhang
