Strange error when installing SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition

Greg Low helps identify what may be causing a "pending file operations" error.

"A previous program installation created pending file operations on the installation machine."
I get the error above when I want to install SQL Server 2000 Developer Edition. Any clues as to why?
That message usually means the system is awaiting a reboot since the last installation/deinstallation operation. Have you tried rebooting first?
