You can't. That is an Enterprise product meant for server OSes. You need to install Developer Edition if you want to look at Enterprise Edition features on Windows 8. It's pretty cheap, although I do not think SQL Server 2008 is available anymore. You would be looking at SQL Server 2012/2014 most likely.

Are you trying to install it from the command line or are you running setup.exe and choosing install from the installation center?

I always put a space before each / character, to allow the preceding parameter to be correctly terminated. OK so I've never tried not putting a space, but all the examples on the MS site show a space before each /.

Have you installed .Net3 on your Windows 8 machine? This is required for all supported SQL Server versions. This link shows the install process http://sqlserverfinebuild.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Install%20.Net%203.5
