I'm trying to install SQL 2005 onto a 2012 R2 server. The install is failing at the end when it is trying to start the database service. I have looked in the install logs and I'm getting the following error. I'm running 8 virtual processors on the virtual machine (8 Cores). I have tried the following with no hope (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/954835/en-us).

Error 29503. The SQL Server service failed to start. For more information, see the SQL Server Books Online topics, "How to: View SQL Server 2005 Setup Log Files" and "Starting SQL Server Manually."
The error is  (1067) The process terminated unexpectedly.

  • Installing a product that is going end of life in under a year on a modern OS? Good luck.. Don't think you are going to find much support. – Tim Brigham May 18 '15 at 15:00
  • One can only try, we don't normally run this version but have the need to test a legacy product. – Richard May 18 '15 at 15:20
  • Apply SQL 2005 SP4 and attempt to start the service. – DanBig May 18 '15 at 15:27
