Hi,

I have SQL Express installed on 2003 Server.

Upon startup of the server I get an error message:

Your SQL installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (error getting instance id from name).

The SQL installation is running properly as I have two databases running perfectly well.

Any ideas how I resolve this as until then I cannot perform any SP installations.

Can you copy the installer to your local machine and try installing once..
SQL Server when installed from a shared location or discs might give some issues like this..

Have you tried to do a
SELECT @@VERSION
or SELECT @@SERVERNAME

See what these give you back.  It could simply be because your servernames in your system catalogs don't match the servername. (or other things)
