I got this error when trying to install Microsoft SQL Server 2012, on Windows 2008 Server Virtual Machine.

This error happened when I unzipped the iso file for SQL Server 2012 and ran Setup.exe manually.

Solution:

The solution as mentioned in above page, is to load the iso file as image in cd/dvd drive on Virtual Machine and do installation.

I hope this will save time for you.
