My teammate used a disk image emulator (a software that emulates the CD/DVD-ROM drive of a computer) for creating a virtual drive, mounted the SQL Server media on that virtual drive, and ran setup from there.


Solution.


We copy the content of the SQL Server media to the hard disk drive, we installed SQL Server from there, and setup was able to install successfully all components that failed on the first installation attempt.
