MS SQL 2005 Express Edition - SP3
I am trying to package MS SQL 2005 Express Edition - SP3.
Before that I was performing some testing as it has various MSI inbuilt.
I first run the setup.exe and installed this with default settings. Looked fine than I uninstalled it.
Now on same machine when I try to run it with following command it fails and crash my machine.
Setup.exe /qb ADDLOCAL=ALL INSTANCENAME=SQLEXPRESS
It runs the setup for few minutes and after that when it tries to start SQL server it suddenly reboots my machine and then I fail to restart my machine.
It restart till login screen and again reboot. [:@]
It is happening again and again.
I also tried many other ways to install with setup.exe but it fails in all way.
Also, I tried to run following 4 msi:
1. SqlSupport.msi --> Installs fine
2. sqlncli.msi --> Installs fine
3. SqlWriter.msi --> Installs fine
4. SqlRun.msi - When I run this msi, it install for 1 minutes and when it tries to start SQL server it suddenly reboots my machine and then again I fail to restart my machine.
What could be missing here [&:]
Could this be due to the fact that MS SQL Server was first installed on this machine and then uninstalled. And then on this machine I am trying to run it again with silent switches and other parameters?
I will really appreciate all the comments.
so that the conversation will remain readable.
