I'm trying to uninstall SQL Server 2008. I went through add remove programs and deleted all the SQL Server programs which didn't remove the services and the instances... I manually deleted the services using command prompt and I even tried deleted the SQL Server directories from program files and program files (x86).
I want to install SQL Server 2008 R2 so I can import data from a back up file from a db on another server. But when I try to install R2 it says the default instance is already being used. How do I get rid of the default instance from the original SQL Server?
