Set up halts when trying to install SQL Server 2008 R2

Recently i have installed SQL Server 2011 (Denali) on Windows Server 2008. I had previously SQL Server 2005 and SQL Server 2008 instances already installed on same windows. Denali was successfully installed and now three versions were working fine.
During test process of one of my articles for MSSQLTips.com, i uninstalled SQL Server 2008 instance and again tried to install it.

After confirmation of existence of required components and selection of required SQL Server features, set up got hanged without any progress or message. I waited for some time and also tried to prioritize the set up process through task manager but all in vain.
So as a final solution i uninstalled Denali and installed SQL Server 2008 without any problem.

Trying to install and configure SQL Server CTP 1 (Denali)

I downloaded the CTP 1 for Denali as soon as it was announced. And also blogged about download resources and new features. When i extracted the package and tried to run setup, it produced following error on Windows Server 2003.

Denali error on Windows Server 2003

As a result i followed the provided link on message box. This page provides rich information about OS and components requirements for Denali installation.
After going through the page i came to know that Denali CTP1 would not run on Windows Server 2003. There are many other requirements but primarily i have to configure a windows server 2008 platform for installation of Denali CTP1.
