Talk us through what you've done so far.

So: have you opened a command prompt window and navigated to the location of the BINN folder for your 2008 instance?

If you have, please post the syntax you are using to try to start the 2008 instance.


Thanks Beatrix.

You are right after that i ran 'Sqlservr.exe –T3608'

Try Sqlservr.exe -m

or Sqlservr.exe -m -s INSTANCENAME if it's a named instance

Check the startup paramters for the sql server service via sql server config manager or via the registry.

The hive location is

HKEY_Local_Machine\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10_50.instancename\MSSQLServer\Parameters

The key to check is

SQLArg1

The location does not exist. If it did, you wouldn't be getting this error:
The system cannot find the path specified.


You need to figure out where SQL is trying to create the error log (the registry key Perry mentioned should be it) and create the path SQL is expecting.

If inheritance is turned off you could see this issue. Open the security properties and under advanced options select the checkbox to force propogation to child objects then click apply.
