I cannot find the default local server after formatting the PC. I installed Microsoft SQL server 2005 x64, but I cannot find the default local server. I can't find SQL server configuration manager in

start > programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2005 > Configuration Tools.

How do I fix it?

Did you install a local instance of SQL? –  Brandon Nov 21 '11 at 15:25
Look in your services (Win-R, services.msc). What's listed for SQL Server? What's the state of SQL Server Browser? –  billinkc Nov 21 '11 at 16:01
