sql2005 eval upgrade to retail version fails...


I installed the evaluation copy on a server, the eval license expired, and now I'm trying upgrade to a retail version. I have read the docs http://support.microsoft.com/kb/914158/en-us and http://blogs.msdn.com/sqlblog/archive/2006/09/17/upgrade-eval-edtion-to-full-blow-sql-2005-editions.aspx but I'm still stuck with errors, esp in upgrading the Reporting Services module.

First question: Can we use either Std or Ent versions to upgrade the evaluation version? Looking at the MS website, the eval version can support unlmited processors, it must have the same architecture as the Enterprise version.

Second: We have uninstalled everything as per the first doc above. Started installation again, the basics were installed correctly, then the system configuration check went smoothly (all green checks!), then proceeds with the module selection. I selected the first 3 (Reporting Services included). The procedure said that I still have the latter installed and will do a check, so it did, and it gave a message:

Reporting Services
The Reporting Services "ReportServer" virtual directory was not found under the default Web site. It certainly isn't as we have uninstalled it.

From here, we can't move on. I did uninstall everything (a check on the Add/Remove Programs doesn't show anything).

Is there a trick here that needs to be done aside from the above docs?

Your help will surely be appreciated.
