Per Microsoft KB article [http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2681562], SQL Server 2005 (and earlier releases of Microsoft SQL Server) are not supported on Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows 8.1, or Windows 8. You will receive a warning in the Action Center if Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 detects an instance of SQL Server 2005.

You can install SQL Server 2005 on a Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2.

Any way round this apart from using a VM on the server 2012 and compatible OS?

Microsoft wont support SQL 2005; After all you are installing SQL Express, any particular reason why it has to be SQL 2005 ? If it is an existing sql 2005 database, you can still set the compatibility of the database to sql 2005

If you use NetScaler you will want to see these guides. The NetScaler How To Guides show administrators how to get NetScaler up and configured by providing instructions for common scenarios and some not so common ones.

you still haven't provided the requirements ? Once you install sql server, you can restore the database from sql 2005; by default the restored database, retains its previous compatibility.
To change the compatibility, right click on the server -> properties -> Options ->  there you can see the option

There are benefits to install the more recent version of SQL Server Express:
- Support
- New features
- Limitation for database size increased from 4GB to 10GB

And being a free tool I don't know why you should keep an old version of SQL Server Express.

Also as Aneesh said you can have a MSSQL 2005 database in a MSSQL 2012 instance by setting the compatibility mode to 9.0
