    SQL Server 2005 is not supported on Windows server 2012 but I guess it wont stop you from installation. I would like to say SQL 2005 is outdated and support for SQL Server 2005 SP4 will end soon( SP3 and later is clearly not supported)

    As suggested please post summary.txt file output from location

    %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\LOG\Files

    Have a look at below link see if it helps
