Unable to attach Adventureworks2008 DB to instances other than the default instance

description

I'm only able to install the Adventureworks2008 DB on one instance of SQL Server 2008. Any attempt to install the DB, using the installer (when using the installer after the first install, only the Remove option is enabled), or attaching the DB using a copy of the first install on another instance on the same machine fails. I've tried both on a Windows Server 2008 and a Vista machine. Is this by design?
