I had to do a manual erase of SQL Server 2000 from ACT in windows 2003 SBS R2 Premium(was upgraded from previous version of 2003 sbs in january). We no longer use ACT. What happened is when I uninstalled SQL Server 2000 did not uninstall 100% so I had to use a Microsoft KB article to go through and wipe out keys in the registry to get rid of the instances. What happened and they said it would is that it would wipe out any MSDE instances as well. It wiped out my Sharepoint and my SBSmonitoring instances. They are still listed in Services but they cannot start. All the data is still listed in the C:\Program Files\MS Sql Server\MSSQL$SBSMONITORING. Is there anyway to restore this database?
