What kind of error (if any) do you get when you try and install SQL Express 2005? Are you sure you are logged in as a local administrator when you are installing the software?
I have the same issue, from what I read you need to completely remove anything related to SQL 2005 from your computer. I will post once I reach some results.

Nevermind my last post, I figured out the problem.

Your WMI Repository is corrupt. Start > Run > winmgmt /salvagerepository

It may fail on the first few tries but trust me when I say keep running that command until it says successful.

I am almost positive this will work for you.
