I am encountering this error during setup. The server previously had WSS 3.0 and the Group Board Workspace. I uninstalled those and installed sharepoint foundation 2010. Initially It was up and running but I was receiving errors trying to load the group
space template, so I uninstalled SPF2010. cleaned up the registry pointers to the old WSS3.0 and Groupboard Workspace and tried to reinstall. Now I get the error
Microsoft SharePoint server 2010 encountered an error during setup. One or more required office components failed to complete successfully.
Looking into the issue it appears that setup cannot install the embedded sql server, since the logs indicate a dbwrap error. There are no "pendingfilerename" operations which fixed this problem for some. I tried to install as a farm but it won't
allow me to use a local admin account. I also looked at the sql configurations and the windows internal database is running.
Any ideas how to I can remove the windows internal database and reinstall SF2010?
