SQL Server Instance Problem

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.

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)

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..
