Here is a chronology...
Our system's harddrive is partitioned into to sections...C: is the DOS partition and D: is the NT partition. Here is my problem... I went to install SQL 6.5 from the CD. For some reason it has an .ini file that tells it to auto install on to the c: drive. Well now the system is having problems because it needs to be installed on d: But I can't remove it from c: There was no unistall utility that I could find so after much deliberation I deleted the directory and made the services disabled. SQL has been deleted. Now when I try to install SQL it say that it has detected SQL 6.5 and I cant install. DOH!!! I copied the cd to the d: drive and changed the ini file to point to the D: drive. It didn't work. Same message as before. How can I get rid of SQL so I can reload it?
