One of the challenges of troubleshooting SQL installations with WebPI is that sometimes the details passed back to Webpi do not provide enough information to tell you how to resolve the issue. This is not the fault of WebPi or the SQL installer, but due to the fact that not all of the errors are exposed to the external process(WebPI) therefore all we can report is that something failed.
