I am having problem while trying to reinstall SQL/SERVER 6.5.
Previously I could install with no problem. Because we lost our SA
password, we had to reinstall.
After the stage where the message stating it is starting SQL/Server and
verying the state of SQL Server, the following message appeared:
The SQL Server installation could not be successfully completed.
MS SQL Server - The service could not be started. Please check the
error/event log to determine the cause - 1058
When I checked the event review, there is no error for application log
but on the system log, it stated that SQL server could not be started
because of the following reason:
The system could not find the path specified.
Please help! We are running on NT 3.5.1 on Dec AXP.
I do appreciate if someone could help me out. I have tried to
reinstall many times already - even to different drives. I even delete
the MS SQL/Server entry at the NT Registry before.
Thanks in advance
