Failed SP4 Install on Domain Controller

During a remote install of SP4 (save archive) on a domain controller, the install hung for over 1 hour.  The process was then terminated through task manager.  I thought it may be due to space so I restarted the install (no save archive).  Partway through the second install, I received an error to the effect that the install had failed and I would need to use my ERD to fix it.  I haven't rebooted yet but, since it's a remote box, I can't very well use the ERD (especially since I don't have one).  Is there anyway to force a reinstall so that it overwrites any partially created files?
