You're going to need to navigate to the sql server installation log and post that or find the last error in it and post that.

To read a SQL Server Setup log file
Open Windows Explorer and navigate to:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG
Open the Summary.txt file. Look through it for error messages.
If you do not find information in the Summary.txt file that tells you what failed, open the SQLSetup[xxxx].cab file in the same root directory.
If this .cab file does not exist, open up the CORE log file from:
%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Files
Look at the most recently modified core log: SQLSetup[xxxx]_[ComputerName]_Core.log.
If an error was displayed in the user interface during Setup, look for this log: SQLSetup[xxxx][s]_[ComputerName]_WI.log.
When parsing a SQLSetup_[xxxx] log file, search the file for 'UE 3'. This is short for 'Return Value 3'.
If a component failed during the installation progress dialog, open the log file SQLSetup[xxxx]_[ComputerName]_SQL.log, and perform the 'UE 3' search to scan for errors.
