Reboot error with SQL 2008 install

  1. Start regedit.exe
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager
  3. Locate PendingFileRenameOperations
  4. Remove any data associated with the value (you may want to export the value for later review)
  5. Reboot and rerun installation, check should pass.

I had the same problem with the logitech garbage in the registery. Just want to add two minor clarification:
1- I didn’t removed the PendingFileRenameOperations registery but only the content
2- I didn’t rebooted after step 1 but I justed clicked on rescan in the SQL installation tool
