not quite enough information; are you saying the installer
fails, and never installs SQL server, or are you saying AFTER you installed, the service won't start?
if the installer successfully installed SQL Server, then you might need to go to Administrative Tools>>Services and modify the start up account to use a different account;after any modifications, you start the service right there and see if it's fixed.
