MS SQL Server Recovery, by

MS SQL Server is a fast, powerful and reliable relational database management system used for storing any kind of data. But sometimes installation of this useful application gets corrupt and results in to following error message:

“Windows could not start the SQL Server ([myinstancename]) on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 10022.”

After getting this error, first of all, try to get the real cause of the error message. Finding the root cause is very simple; just try to bypass Configuration Manager by attempting to start the SQL Server from the Windows Services applet. Another way of starting SQL server is through command prompt. It may happen that after running the command, you get the following error message:

Your SQL Server installation is either corrupt or has been tampered with (Error getting instance ID from name.). Please uninstall then re-run setup to correct this problem

This error message is an indication of big trouble, but anyhow it needs to be fixed if you want to work on SQL Server.  As stated in the error message, re- install the application but re-installing the SQL Server may or may not solve the problem, but even make your database more corrupt or damaged.  The MDF files may corrupt as the installation of SQL Server has been damaged. This is the condition when you need SQL repair software.

Another solution you can go for is the editing of registry entries. If you are technically through with the registry concepts, then locate the following:


There may be some permission problems, so correct it. If this does not work, then un-install the SQL Server, so that all the SQL entries can be successfully removed from the registry. Now install the application again. After installation, all the related problems of installation will get clear.
