Hello:

I was installing MS SQL Server Personal Edition in my Windows 2000 Prof. machine. Just before end of the installation process there was a quick power failure and the machine went dead. Once I rebooted the machine, I realized SQL was not installed properly and I try to uninstall it using the CD and it says install log file is corrupted. I tried to use registry rebuild and it doesn't work either. I tried to re-install it, but the installation process try to install another instance of SQL which I don't want to. Is there a way to completely remove the corrupted installation manually and start another fresh SQL installation session?

Thanks…
