Slipstreaming SQL 2008 Sp1

If you try installing SQL 2008 RTM on either Windows 7, Vista Sp2 or XP Sp3 you will find that install fails. There is a really easy fix for this by simply slipstreaming Sp1 with the RTM image by following these instructions here.

In terms of the actual problem I’m not sure of what the exact cause is here although I suspect it’s related to this issue with MSXML.
