Just tried installing Windows 2008 R2 with SQL 2008 SP1. Everything went smooth, no errors/warning during SQL installation. Then I attempted to launch SQL Management Studion and the system locked up completely, couldn't do anything except cold reset. Tried few times no go. Anyone had similar experience?
