    For “Wait on the Database Engine recovery handle failed”, there are several resolutions: If it is not possible to use a supported disk, maybe you can set the trace flag using the -T option.

    Hi @Raja Reddy, First you should go to the error log and check if there is a corresponding error about the sector. If there is, you can follow the solution in the documentation. You need to make sure that SQL Server is installed successfully, and then see if its services are started successfully. Best regards, Seeya
