In attempting to install SQL2008R2 Express Edition I'm getting this message about 90% into the installation process: "Not all privileges or groups referenced are assigned to the caller"
Things I've tried:
1) Put the user 'Joe' into the following Local Security areas: Backup files and directories; Debug Programs; Manage auditing and coding; Restore files and directories; Take Ownership.... as well as even Change System Time; Change Time Zone. [Note I've done a restart after these were assigned]
2) I've even tried several new names for the SQL Instance and I still get the issue.
I'm at a loss of what to do... Help deeply appreciated!
I'm installing SQL2008R2EE under 'Joe' and 'Joe' is part assigned as a member of Administrators.
Note: I have installed SQL2008R2EE before but due to some issues I needed to uninstall/reinstall. Now, even after uninstalling properly in Win7Pro I get the above error message.

I solved the issue by removing ALL directories under c:\Program Files (x86) and c:\Program Files that were related to Microsoft SQL Server. Evidently, whenever I created an Instance the SQL installation process creates a directory of the same name. So whatever the issue is relative to the uninstall process under SQL 2008R2 (not R2 SP1), there's a lack of full cleanup of the directories and related files. I did not update the Registry (Win7 Professional) just removed the associated Microsoft SQL directories and related files/subdirectories under the above directory structure.
Thanks for jumping in and suggesting the link!!! ;-)

Hi Jian et al.,
I finally figured this one out on my Server 2008 box. I was attempting to install from my e: drive and kept getting this error. I verified in my local policy that my user had a privlege required and even tried SQL 2012. I finally found someone that offhandedly mentioned that they had this problem until they the install from the local desktop of the server. I tried that and it worked. I did make sure to clean up previous files before trying the install, but the local c: drive install seems to be the issue.
