I have Sys Admins with Admin Rights on a Server. I want to stop/prevent them from installing any instances of SQL on that Server.
Sorry about the dumb initial question.

You can use Software Restriction group Policies to block installaing the software. Use additional rules for your requirement  http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles-tutorials/netgeneral/Software-Restriction-Policies.html
