Hi,
On which Operating system are you trying to install and which edition of sql server 2008 are you trying to install.
Please note that Standard and Enterprise versions of sql server 2008 requires Windows Server operating sytem (2003 or 2008).
In case if you are trying to install it on Windows xp or Vista or Windows 7 then better install Sql server express with sql management studio.
You can have upto 10 Gb of storage data with sql server express edition.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Try reinstalling the Visual C++ redistributable will correct the issue and allow the service to start.  After starting the service the patches will install correctly.

Hi,
Try the following steps in case if you are installing the sql server on a proper OS and still getting an error:

Step 1: To correct this install error, you need to clear the log.
 
a.    Open an Administrator command prompt: Right-click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator" and click "Allow" for the elevation prompt
 
b.    In the command prompt, type the command below:
 
fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\
 
c.    This assumes that C: is the drive in which the OSis installed. If it is installed on another drive like D:, please change the drive letter appropriately.
 
d.    Reboot the system.
 
e.    Install the software and check.
 
Step 2: Check if you are able to install in clean boot.
 
“How to perform Clean Boot” http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135     
 

Step 3: Repair .net framework and check.
 
Repair the Microsoft .NET Framework installation
 
To do this, follow these steps:
 
a.    Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
 
b.    In the Currently installed programs list, click Microsoft .NET Framework, and then click Change/Remove.
 
c.    Click Repair, and then click Next.
