    Unanswered: SQL2000/NT4SP6a Install error - Help!

    I get the following error when trying to install SQL2000 Std on an NT4SP6a server:

    "setup has detected that the previous install attempt was not completed. Retry to continue installation or cancel to exit setup".

    I have removed the \program files\microsoft sql server, have also removed the obvious entries via regedt32. When the server is rebooted the message comes back when retrying.

    If you select 'Continue' it picks up on the file copy to \program files\microsoft sql server, but fails as the rest of the required entries has been cleared out. There is an entry undeer add/remove programs but this doesnt work as the install filders have been cleared out too!

    Any help much appreciated - this one has me beaten !
