HELP! Installation Problems

i am trying to install sql 2005 developers edition on my windows 2003 server r2 machine. the OS was just installed and the only thing i have done to the machine is make it a file server and an application server. when i install sql, i get the error "could not write value to key <registry key>. verify you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel." i am logged on as the administrator and have changed all the permissions in the registry to full. this error comes up during the setup of the integration services. i am at a loss.

The error message seems to be very generic and could not be cause of one reason specific/.. can you give us exact error message you are getting.. or error log or event log entry. Deepak Kumar
