Unable to install sql 2008 Service Pack 1
Posted on 2011-09-12
My sql 2008 server is working fine but when i try to install service pack 1 i am getting "A MOF syntax error occurred". In searching i came across afew posts that said the fix is to do a repair on sql 2008 but when doing a repair it still comes up with the following error:
"A MOF syntax error occurred"
The 3 features that seem to fail are:
"Database Engine Services"
"SQL Server Replication"
Final result: Failed: see details below
