Errors Reinstallins SQl 2008 after uninstall
Posted on 2012-08-20
I removed all the instances. I still have alot of SQL 2008 left in my Directory, but I keep looking how to completely uninstall and just get told to uninstall instances, or go and manually play with my registry..
I try to reinstall SQL 2008 and get the following error.
The following Error has occurred:
The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified.
Click retry to retry the failed action, or click "cancel" to cancel this action and continue setup.
Retry never works.. Continue setup, gives me the shell of SQL management but the new instance is not created.
I tried with default instance, a named instance I had created before, and a brand new never used before instance.. All fail..
How can I clean out the old SQL Server so I can reinstall it? (hopefully without manually playing with my registry.)
