    Unanswered: Failed 2008 install

    I am having issues with a 2008 install of SQL Server 64 bit standard edition. We are trying to install on a Workstation (64 bit) and I get the following errors.

    Detailed results:
    Feature: Database Engine Services
    Status: Failed: see logs for details
    MSI status: Passed
    Configuration status: Failed: see details below
    Configuration error code: 0xFB92A9BB
    Configuration error description: This version of %1 is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need a x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.
    Configuration log: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log\20110504_113311\Detail.txt

    When I try to start the service I get this error:

    Windows could not start the SQL Server(MSSQLSERVER) service on Local Computer. Error 216: 0xd8

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Workstation operating systems typically can only take Developer or Express versions of the SQL Server engine. You can install the client tools alone on any workstation, just not all of the server components.
