SQL server 2008 SP1 Restart computer checks failed

I was trying to install Biztalk server 2010 beta which requires SQL server 2008 SP1. At beginning of installing SQL server 2008 SP1, it says Restart computer required. It looks something
has not been reset or cleared properly. After searching around, I realised that this could be caused by that some pending operations hasn’t been cleared in the past.

This is how I solved my problem within a minute.

Open registry by run Regedit

Find entry

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\PendingFileRenameOperations

Rename it to something like PendingFileRenameOperationsToDELETE

Re-run the SQL Server 2008 SP1 checks. It worked.
