SQL express 2008 installation failed.

Dear all,

It took me hours to figure out the problem and searched for the solution. I found many people get the same issue, but unfortunately, there was not any solution. Please help me to take a look at this problem.

I used Windows 7 Home premium SP1. I installed SQL express 2008 and it failed. It said that: "Wait on the Database Engine recovery handle failed. Check the SQL Server error log for potential causes."

I checked to the log file and found this:

2012-04-28 23:16:33 Slp: Error: Action "SqlEngineDBStartConfigAction_install_configrc_Cpu64" failed during execution.

2012-04-28 23:16:33 Slp: Action "AgentScriptConfiguration_install_rc_Cpu64" will return false due to the following conditions:

2012-04-28 23:16:33 Slp: Condition "Feature dependency condition for action: AgentScriptConfiguration_install_rc_Cpu64 The condition tests feature: SQL_Engine_Core_Inst_sql_engine_core_inst_Cpu64. There are 10 dependant features. The feature is tested for results: ValidateResult, Result." did not pass as it returned false and true was expected.
What should I do with this problem? I appreciate every hint/idea/suggestion from you all.

Thanks for your replies,

Dear Venkatreddy, I selected the default instead of named instance. I tried the named instance once or twice and I thought the wizard automatically renamed the MSSQLSERVER in the path. Do I have to rename anything else it omitted manually?

Dear Tim, I have a 64 bit OS and try to install the 64 bit installation media also. I intend to use the 32 bit installation media. Hope it may help.

Is the error above the full error, can you post the results on the install log?

Dear Tim,

Sorry for being late. I got a trouble in my life yesterday, so I couldn't be online. Thanks for waiting for me.

Here is my summary and detail log for the error.

All of them are plain text files, no zip (*.txt).

Is is possible that you have a 64 bit installation media but are installing on a 32 bit OS?

If you are you installing a named instance, you should replace MSSQLSERVER in the path with the instance name.

New code box

There's a new way to format code on the site - the red speech bubble logo will automatically format T-SQL for you. The original code box is still there for XML, etc. More details here.
