Side-by-side installation of SQL 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2005

Posted: June 17, 2012 in SQLServer, Uncategorized

Recently we faced issue with installing SQL Server 2005 in the db server that already has SQL Server 2008 R2 in it.

I tried installing all latest service packs from SP2 to Sp4 for SQL Server 2005 as mentioned in the reference link and it still not resolved the issue. So I was told to un install everything and reinstall SQL Server 2005 first and then SQL Server 2008 R2.

Installing multiple versions of SQL server in the same box is not always smooth. Let me know if any easy tips are available for this to follow.
