I tried to install SQL server 2008 and got a few errors.  According to the logs it fails:
"Error: Action "Install_SqlSupport_Cpu64_Action" failed during execution."

The error occurs right after it tries to install 6 registry files. I have attached the log file. search for @, i placed them where the problem occurs.

I really needs to get this installed ASAP! Thanks for you help upfront.
