Yeah, the install error message would be good to see.

Been a very long time since installing from DVD, I normally download the appropriate variant.

So, you could also download from MS and compare (it contains SP1) : http://www.microsoft.com/en-au/download/details.aspx?id=35575

That download size is over 3 gig for the fullslipstream version.
