There might be three reasons -
(1) Installation media is corrupt. --> Download the file again to solve.

(2) Anti-virus might cause the problem --> Stop Anti-virus Services before installation.

(3) Native Client might have some problem
--> Download it from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=DF0BA5AA-B4BD-4705-AA0A-B477BA72A9CB&displaylang=en.
1. Uninstall the native client first with Add-Remove Programs in Control Panel.
2. Install Native client again.

In your case, you may work on Reason-3 first if above two are not working.

Wow, there are so many choices at that url.  Can you tell which one I need to download?  I'm on widows 2008 server.  attached please see the CP screen.  I seem to have several sql components installed.  Do I need to un-install all of them?  The SSMS seems to be running but there is just no database engine installed.  Thank you.

As your installation failed, uninstall all of them starting with "Microsoft SQL Server".

1. Uninstall
2. Reboot the machine.
3. Install "sqlncli_x64.msi" from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=DF0BA5AA-B4BD-4705-AA0A-B477BA72A9CB&displaylang=en
4. Reboot the machine
5. Install your downloaded stuff. Make sure what you have downloaded is not corrupted. Otherwise, download it again.
