I'm trying to install SQL Server 2005 Enterprise on Windows 2003 R2 SP2 (ESXi 5.0.0 guest). After installation of backward compatibility files and prior to MSXML6, I receive this error:
There was an unexpected failure during the setup wizard. You may review the setup logs and/or click the help button for more information.
This is a part of core log file containing error:
Running: InstallSqlAction.9 at: 2015/9/5 10:15:10 Installing: msxml6 on target: MONITORING Error: Action "InstallSqlAction.9" threw an exception during execution. Error information reported during run: Target collection includes the local machine. Invoking installPackage() on local machine.

It seems that configuration file has a problem, but what?! How can I fix this?
PS: The reason of installing SQL 2005 on Windows 2003 is that I have a network monitoring application which works only on this combination and can't upgrade to its latest version.
