I have totally screwed my BES 4.1

I was attempting (remotely on a weekend) apply service pack 6 to my Blackberry Enterprise Server for Exchange.

It sits on an SBS2003 server.

It started giving error 1361 unable to connect to network for xxxxxxxx .msi (can't remember the exact message), tried to fix it following various methods, one of which was to use the Windows Install Cleanup Utility.

Now each time I try to upgrade or even start a fresh install I get:  "failed to migrate version 2.1 registry. The setup progam will now end."

I cant uninstall as there is nothing in the add/remove programs..

I don't mind doing a fresh install, but can't get to that point.

I am in urgent need of sorting this out as I am going away on holiday tomorrow ..
