    1)Can anybody pls answer ,what are the errors usually come while installing sql server?

    thats a big question, but probably most installation failures are going to be caused by

    a)lack of permissions

    b)missing pre-prerequisitese. .net framework)

    c)hardware configuration issues (i.e. not enough disk space)

    2)If installation ,fails how to find the exact reason?

    installation write verbose logs to c:\program files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Logand under there a time stamped directory for this run of the installation.

    pre-reqs and hardware it will be obvious from the error message. permissions you will probably need to look in the summary log or perhaps the detailed log.
