I have a number of machines that the client will just not install on  or has had the 2007 SP1 client on but will not reinstall with the R2.

When I have looked through the server log ccm.log this seems to indicate that the files download fine to the machine.

However looking through the ccmsetup.log it seems to fail for the following reason

<![LOG[Installation failed with error code 1635]LOG]!><time="16:23:45.106+000" date="03-09-2011" component="ccmsetup" context="" type="3" thread="4864" file="msiutil.cpp:889">

I have attached part of the client.msi.log which I hope will give more clues as to why the install failed I just do not know how to resolve the issue.

Just looking at that log, it looks like there is a hotfix which isn't getting installed...
Looks like this one?  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/977384

That isn't an actual solution, but it looks like it might be one step along the path.
