How to Install Operations Manager 2007 on Windows Server 2008

I am going to install System Center Operations Manager 2007 SP1 on Windows Server 2008 64Bit. I already installed SQL server 2005 SP1, when starting to install SCOPM and checking System Prerequisites it giving SQL server 2005 Sp1 failed, how can I pass over that? Are there is another system prerequisites needed on Windows 2008 64 Bit for SCOPM? Please help me in this

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Yes I have tried this. I applied Windows Server 2K8 SP2. Same problem i face with Windows Server 2K8 64BIT. Please help
Sound more like a permission or access  issue "Could not get SQL Server instance names".
Check your account permission for access on the database/sql server and check your firewall for access to the machine and/or database instance of the machines.

is there any other application running on the same W2K8 or installed before? better do a pilot install first on a CLEAN W2K8 machine for test.
