Checked log at %programfiles%Microsoft SQL
Server90Setup BootstrapLogHotfixsummary.txt and it said Backupexec instance
“SQL Server Setup cannot upgrade the
specified instance because the previous upgrade did not complete.”
Add/Remove Programs, Select Microsoft SQL 2005 and click Change, select the instance that the log shows that did not complete. It runs a check. I had to reboot again since it reported a setup did not complete. Rebooted and went back, select Complete the suspended Installation.

Looking for sqlrun_sql.msi: Left this dialog open while I did this:
SQLEXPR.EXE can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=31711D5D-725C-4AFA-9D65-E4465CDFF1E7&displaylang=en
Downloaded and ran. After Extraction left window open that reported multiple instances of setup running. Found sqlrun_sql.msi in the temporary directory SQLEXPR.EXE created…But got message it is not valid installation package for product Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition (BKUPEXEC). Found SQLEXPR.EXE in the original installation directory of Backup Exec 12, but it gives same message after extracting and selecting the sqlrun_sql.msi file.
I will leave this one alone for now .
