The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

Has anyone ever struck this error before with a SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise installation?

"The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it."

I've tried installing with various accounts with local admin permissions, slipstreaming sp2 into the installer, but I still have issues.

so for the clustered install of sql, make sure you follow the install procedure and that you have all the perquisites in place.

please let us know if you were following this procedure. if a clustered install is not the intention, make sure to select "new installation" option (see attached image).

The issue turned out to be the VSS Writer being disabled on install.
