At first many of the components didn't install and I followed this workaround (fixing user/SID mappings in registry.)

After that everything installed successfully except for analysis services. I am getting the exact same error message as before on analysis services. (Are there other users installed by sql server I'm not aware of perhaps?)

Do you guys have any ideas? All of my searches seem to just point to that workaround above that I already did.

Error message from log:
