Installing SQL Server 2008 R2 November CTP

Okay, apparently you need to hack your registry to get over the 'reboot your system' issue during the install process... :(

To fix this:
search your registry for: PendingFileRenameOperations
and delete all keys you find !

No reboot required, just do a 'rescan' and this issue is solved :)
