Hi,

I've downloaded SQL2005 from MS VLS, unzipped the files into C:\Servers and C:\Tools and run the setup file.
The installer start running "SQL Server Setup is scanning your computer's configuration" and stopped with the error: There was an unexpected failure during the setup wizard.

The OS is 2003 Enterprise 32bit and the SQL is 32Bit as well.

What do I need to do to make it work?

2003 Enterprise Edition 32Bit.
Server meets the requirements.

The server is a part of 2 nodes cluster.

When I checked the logs, I found out the following:

From core.log:
Action "LaunchPatchedBootstrapAction" will be skipped due to the following restrictions:
Condition "EventCondition: __STP_LaunchPatchedBootstrap__932" returned false.


From core (local).log:
Loaded DLL:C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\sqlsval.dll Version:2005.90.1399.0

shows that you are facing a problem related to the cluster configuration.. check public network, heartbeat, disks, qourum configurations...

Solved.
it was a mix of various issues:
1. computer browser was stopped and failed to start - adding exception in firewall solved it.
2. DTC service reported errors - once solved everything else worked.

Thank you
