I've been trying to install SQL Server on a new Windows Server 2008. I have tried everything but I haven't been able to narrow down the problem.

When the installation fails I get " Exit code (Decimal): -2068643839". The problem with this is that according to Microsoft this is a generic error code. I follow their guide to look into the detail.txt inside C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\

But I can't find something that specifies the exact error.

Any suggestions ? Thanks in advanced.

I uploaded to detail.txt to http://www.megaupload.com/?d=0MV46SZH because it is to big to paste here.

Below is the summary.txt
