I have a package for SQL 2008 Managment Tools to deploy via SCCM but it requires 2 reboots before it installs SQL. One reboot for Windows Installer 4.5 and one for .NET 3.5. Is there a way to install SQL 2008 without having the machines reboot.

Probably not.. did you try installing the pre-requisites first with the reboots supressed to test if the SQL 2008 install completes OK ?

thanks, yes i do supress the reboots of the pre-requisites but SQL won't install until the machine is rebooted. Once the machine is rebooted then SQL will install successfully. Just wanted to see if anyone had a work around for this.
