SQL Server has encountered the Following error: sku

Hi All,

I uninstalled SQL Server 2008 Enterprise on 64 but machine and deleted the databases which were being used by a collegue for another system and decided I needed a fresh installation when he gave me the server to use. I removed everything fine and the installation was fine and said all was successful.

But when I check I dont see the MSSQL service installed in Services and Management Studio wasn't installed in Programs??! so then I decide to do a repair, that went fine (everything successful) but still no change... so I decided to try to try the fresh install and add features (incase they are not there). When I get to the point of selecting to add features to an existing instance.. I get the error mentioned above.. below is screen shot. Please help!

Is a previous SQL completely uninstalled?
Are you running the installation with admin rights?

It seems the earlier installation was not removed completely in that case you have to remove it manually.
