When installing 2008 SQL Express it fails with the following error in the sql_engine_core_inst_Cpu32_1.log file

Specified instance {B8E9F8A1-9F4D-43D5-ABD6-1DF067FAA469} via transform :InstID02.mst;:InstName01.mstInstName01 is already installed. MSINEWINSTANCE requires a new instance that is not installed.

do you have any instance of SQL SERVER already installed on your machine if yes
while installing new SQL Express change the instance name and try i.e SQLExpress2008
hope that helps
