This happens if I try to uninstall it or even repair it. The setup stops working at the end. Any help would be much appreciated.

Download Microsoft Windows Installer Cleanup Utility from, for example, MajorGeeks.com

Run it, find all records Microsoft SQL Server... and remove it. Clear registry from trash records, for example, by CCleaner. Then install SQL Server again and remove it from add/remove in control panel.

I'm against using a registry cleaner in principle, but the rest of your advice might work. Bear in mind that the Cleanup Utility is no longer supported by Microsoft because it is older technology. –  user3463 Jan 12 '11 at 21:34
    
"Bear in mind that the Cleanup Utility is no longer supported by Microsoft because it is older technology" - but it work! And Ccleaner is harmless, imho. –  Ratin Jan 12 '11 at 21:56
