2007A p42 server install error


I am getting an error during the 2007A p42 server install after the SBO_Common, Help and Demo DB loads AND when it is on the install screen with this path below:


then an error shows up saying:

Unable to connect to the database, check to be sure the database server is running

I say ok to the error and it takes me to another screen with the Dbserver name, DBname, User name and password

All my TCP/IP setting in the SQL Config is set correctly and is enabled, SQL Studio opens fine and I see the DB's listed, but it will go no further than that spot on install, it loops

It seems if I cancel and let it tell me B1install Fails (which is a severe error) it still works fine.

I have come across this error about 3x now when installing 2007A for the first time, what gives????
