I have a laptop with xp tablet pc edition on it.

i tried to install mssql2k on it twice and it failed both times

i cannot uninstall it because it says the log file is corrupt

i want to install MSDE on there instead since mssql2k failed but but i can't because a the MSDE installer says that there is an existing instance of SQL server and quits.

How do i manualy remove the MSSQL mess?

I would just reload the whole OS but this damn thing has no cd rom drive.

Try MS support:

Also, if you're using AD you can setup a RIS box and have it push images to clients for fresh installations via PXE.
