Do you have enough disk space on the drive where you're trying to install Office?  How much do you have free?

Here's an article with a related windows installer error trying to install HP software (just substitute "HP all-in-one" for "Office" and I think you'll get the point): http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=pl&cc=pl&dlc=pl&product=421635&docname=c00093471

Are you still having problems installing office.  Try coping the entire cd to your hd and doing the install from the hd instead of cd.  Sometimes the cd drive has problems reading the cd, when trying to install a program.
