Trying to uninstall SQL 2008. I have already 2005 on there. I do not need either at the moment. I wanted to get a full install of whichever would be best for an install of Microsoft Dynamics CRM. I have been on EE for weeks with no luck on this project.

I followed the steps to try to remove SQL 2008 first I had both R2 and Standard installed. (again not to mention 2005) Remember my ultimate goal is to get CRM installed which seems to need the full install plus SQL reporting services.

So I get the following error when trying to uninstall. I have rebooted the server as well trying to correct this. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I am not so sure this is the problem. Are you saying I should download a hotfix. I have already installed SP2. I have been trying to uninstall. I have gone and checked to see if the Archive attribute is set on some folder. It was not. I could not find it anywhere on any folder. So.....
I just want to uninstall it completely and reinstall SQL Server 2008. This should not be made so hard by Microsoft. You shold be able to uninstall a complete application else different components individually. The problem when I try to do this individually is that it will not let me.  I wonder if there is a tool that would remove all SQL 2008 files .....any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

I just tried to apply the patch and got this error.

Here is what I also noticed from all the attempts to install the software creating new named databases that would not seem to fully install. Any help here is really appreciated. Thank you.

Here is the latest ScreenShot. I have been able to uninstall SQL Server 2005. However I have been getting stuck over and over again with the same issues. Is there any way to safely manually remove SQL Server 2008 and just start over.

Again I have tried to install and uninstall so many times. It is just not working. Here is what is left on the server. If there is a sequence I will try it. I have again tried installing all components several times over. No love from the Server yet. Here is what is left please advise if you can.
