You pick up the phone and call Autodesk or your VAR you purchased it from :D
Check the TEMP folder (sort by date/time) and see if there's a detailed log of just AcadM. The log you posted appears to be a log of the entire install process. Each prereq and product typically has it's own detailed log which can provide additional information.

If it doesn't, the SETUP.INI typically can be edited (you'll have to be familiar with MSIEXEC switches) to include a verbose log.

The Solution is to install the program directly from the Installation DVD and NOT from a copied location on a server.

Thanks for your contributions
