I am trying to do an in place SQL 2000 to SQL 2008 upgrade but it keeps on failing when the feature selection appears. From what I can see the error stems from me trying to upgrade from 2000 Developer Edition to 2008 Enterprise Edition.

I need to overcome this problem. Ideas anyone, please?

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143393.aspx - you can upgrade to SQL 2008 Developer. And from there you can upgrade to SQL 2008 Enterprise.

Well, I struggled to get hold of a Developers edition copy and tried to update it using Evaluation mode with the same effect. Same errors.

What errors did you get? Your alternative is to upgrade SQL 2000 dev to SQL 2000 Ent and then SQL 2008 Ent upgrade. Alternatively you can uninstall and install sql 2008 with same settings (pay attention to collation) and attach databases.

I couldn't upgrade to 2008 Developer for some reason, so opted to upgrade to 2005 Developer first, then to 2008. That worked fine.
