Clean install of SQL 2008 Enterprise onto a machine running Windows 2003R2 Datacenter SP2. Machine was clean of SQL Server Express/Standard/etc version of any SQL Server edition.
I've run into this error repeatedly. Checked to ensure that both the installing account and the service account had full access to the "protect" folder in their profiles. Checked to ensure that the install media was good by re-downloading it. Uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times.
Error in install log:
