I have tried both SQL ServerExpress 2014 & 2012 with the same results.
I install but both the Database Engine and SQL Server Replication fail to install.
I cannot start any of the services.

I have uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled several times with the same results.
I have attached all of my logs and screenshots for the 2012 install, looking for guidance on what is happening.
Server is Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard
32 GB Ram
C:\ OS = 1TB
D:\ Data = 12 TB
Install SQL Express on the C:\ parition


Thanks

what I've had to do was for the service account use 'system' for installation and later change it after it was installed

Hi,
You should go through this article, here you will see the steps what you have to perform before the installation of SQL Server 2012.

Hope it will be helpful.
Could you reinstall it but specify a different port this time instead of default 1433 port. Let me know if you have already tried that.

I too was having lot of issues while installing SQL Server 2014....
The solution was to uninstall Visual C++ drivers from Control Panel using Add/Remove Programs and then update Windows (which will install required drivers again)

After following the above method, I was able to install SQL Server 2014 without any issues.

Give that a try

Can you post the installation log (not the summary.txt)?
