Installation of SQL Express 2012 Error

Last Modified: 2016-02-25
When Installing SQL Express 2012 on our Windows 2012 R2 64 bit server I encountered Database Engine Services Error  0x851A001A.

I have tried various ways to fix the issue but I am now stumped and in need of help ASAP. Please keep answers simple as I am not a true db guy. I will attach the install log for reference.
