I've had a failed install of SQL 2008 on a windows server 2008 box and now when I try and uninstall the uninstall fails and asks me if I'd like to remove it from the list.
If I do a repair I get so many errors and I think I know where it went wrong now, but I can't fully uninstall it properly to try!
The first problem was I hadn't turned off UAC and I was trying to install as Domain Admin.
I then went to the box as a the local admin and it failed because we have a domain policy here that has a list of specific users that have rights to the "Manage auditing and security log " so that failed also, and this when it got into a right mess.
Is there any known method on how to fully remove SQL 2008? THis really is turning out to be the install from hell!
Any help greatly appreciated
