SQL 2008 upgrade error

I receive an error when upgrading a SQL instance from 2000 to 2008. "The following error has occurred: One or more command-ilne switches were invalid."
I've tried to upgrade using the 'upgrade from SQL 2000 or 2005' option in the installation media.

Screenshot attached, thanks John screenshot

Please look in %programfiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\
In file summary.txt please find for 'error' or 'failed' messages.
