Hi

I am having a problem installing SQL Server on my home Windows 8 computer.

The version I am using is SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard.
It installed and worked fine on my Windows 7 machine but since I bought this new Windows 8 computer I haven't been able to install SQL Server.

I get the following error half way through the installation process - which comes after SQL Server ask all the questions and begin the actual  installation:

you did not give a valid login or you do not have permission.

Please help
