    Did you try installing SP3 first?

    Do you mean Windows XP SP3? But, Requiremnts says Windows XP SP2 itself enough for installing SQL 2008

    To be exact this is the info i get when i click help on the error details
    Product:SQL Server
    Component:SQL Engine
    Message:The login '%s' does not exist.
    You have passed a nonexistent login to a system stored procedure that is expecting a valid login.
    User Action
    Reissue the stored procedure call with a valid login for the parameter.

    you can use one of the default user acoounts: system or network from the combo box during installation and assign that account for all services.
    only you have to add an account for administration , and also you can select it from winows user account with administration rights.

    Can you look at the setup log and find where this is generating, find that stored procedure or code used.
