Hello everyone,
I'm trying to install SQL Server (Developer) 2022 after having upgraded my machine to windows 11. It was previously installed on windows 10 and was working completely fine. Then I heard that some issues happen for installed instances, so I removed it using the wizard and after upgrading I tried to reinstall it again but got that error.

I have attached the log details (Detail.txt) and summary (Summary.txt). I would be thankful to get any kind of help with that issue.

Note: The PC is joined on a domain-controlled environment and Sophos endpoint is installed but the same thing was there when I first installed SQL Server (Developer) 2022 on windows 10.

    Hi @Ahmed Samy

    On systems running Windows 11, some new storage devices and device drivers will expose a disk sector size greater than the supported 4-KB sector size.

    Here is an article provides solutions for troubleshooting errors during installation or starting an instance of SQL Server on Windows 11.

    Best regards,

    Cosmog Hong
