    The error about wait for the Database Engine recovery handle means that SQL Server did not start when Setup wanted to run configuration. There can be multiple reasons why this happens.

    To understand why, you need to do as the message says: look in the SQL Server errorlog. You find it C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL16.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\LOG\ERRORLOG.

    If you see a message about 256 misaligned reads, you are running into a known issue where Windows 11 is reporting a disk-sector size for certain drives that SQL Server cannot cope with. Microsoft has published an article with workarounds for the problem.
