can you post the logs from the "Setup Boostrap" folder?

While you're getting the logs, a few other things to check:
  Confirm the prerequisites are loaded.  Usually that's .NET 3.5 SP1... and usually the installer will take care of it for you.  Not high hopes on this one.
  Run 'winver.exe' which can usually be found in the windows/system32 directory, and confirm it looks 'normal'... not a Debug version of the OS.  Apparently there is an issue with the debug version.  (There are also apparently some evaluation editions of Windows which also cause the SQL installer to fail in this way.)
  Were there any other versions of the client or SQL tools previously installed on this instance?
  Another possible item to check... in the local security policies make certain the setting "Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment\Debug programs" isn't getting turned on by group policy.

It turned out that we had a "debugged" version of the os for the install that was corrupt

The Debugged version of the install was corrupt.  An install of the original version took care of the problem
