I got the the following error while installing a SQL Server Failover Cluster.

"Your SQL Server 2008 failover cluster installation completed with failures."

The Summary Log file and the Log with failure file attached.

I cant seem to figure out what the issue.

Please I need your assistance.

It appears as though you are attempting to install a SQL Instance that already exists

Specified instance{FBD367D1-642F-47CF-B79B-9BE48FB34007} via transform :InstID01.mst;:InstName01.mst is already installed. MSINEWINSTANCE requires a new instance that is not installed.

You are attempting to use the instance name of MSSQLSERVER. Check to see if you have a default instance of SQL Server installed on that server (SQL-TESTNODE1)

interesting. I thought I uninstall it. Is there a way I can permanently remove the instance so that I can restore it?

I look forward to hearing from you

I would ensure that you uninstall all SQL components (there might be some leftover pieces, check the add/remove programs) and then you'll want to clean up the registry. Have a read of http://support.microsoft.com/kb/955404

Just a quick thought - If the option is cleaning up bits of the registry, you might also consider rebuilding the cluster from scratch with a fresh windows install so you know everything is clean

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.
