Now the installation may still fail, especially if you just took the defulats in your installation of SQL Server. No problem. Open up the file C:\WINNT\TEMP\mbsinst\MBS.R3S and make the following changes to these keys.
Now restart the installation using “Resume Installation” again and it should complete. You should run transaction SGEN to compile the system as soon as you login, just be sure you don’t plan on using it for a while. I haven’t actually done this yet as it is on my laptop of rather limited resources. Perhaps I’ll try this tonight and post tomorrow how long it took. Or maybe I won’t since I only have 256MB on this machine so that would be a rather unfair statistic to post.
