I have a windows server 2008 machine, which I had sql server 2005 running on happily, then I needed to install 2008 R2 for another job. I was hoping to run them side by side. I configured 2008 to run as SERVERNAME\SQLSERVER08 and 2005 is on SERVERNAME. However now I cannot get 2005 to run... whenever I try to start the service it says:
Windows could not start the SQL Server (MSSQLSERVER) service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Any ideas would be much appreciated!
There are no log files in the log directory In Event Viewer there are is an error:
