finebuild code failing with error code -2068578304


Hello I been attempting my first install using the finebuild code and am experiencing a error almost immediately after the SQL Server setup gets past the installation file copy phase generating error Error -2068578304. The only additional information I have in logs is that the error occured at Process Id at failure 2BAB.
No SQL Server boot strap files are created.
Need some help shedding light on what might be causing this.

If the SQL Server bootstrap files were not created, the problem is almost always caused by not having pre-requisite software installed. The most common missing component if .Net 3.5.

FineBuild v3.3.0 has better messaging than previous versions, but it cannot overcome missing software. Please check SQL Media Preparation and look for the list of pre-requisite software for the version of SQL Server you are installing.
