Pls ...I need help re: "cannot create database"

I am new to SAP and I am having a trouble installing my SBO to my laptop, after completing the installation of my SQL server express edition, I tried to install the SAP business one. But when I am already at the server installation the message "cannot create database" appears. What seem to be the problem?

I tried the same process with my desktop yet I never encountered such problem, I was able to install the system successfully.

Please.... any help on this regard will be very much appreciated!

Thanks to all of you!

There is no difference what so ever between a laptop or a desktop. I think the files from the first installation are still on your laptop and are causing the issue.

You would probably need to clean all installation files and then re-install.
