If you look at the SQL server log it will start with "Starting up database 'SOFTGRID'" and the last entry is "Setting database option RECOVERY to RECMODEL_70BACKCOMP for database SOFTGRID" and then that's it. No other errors are present that would indicate why it failed.

A couple of folks on the forum found that this was caused by specifying the the local Administrators security group during setup instead of the Domain Admins group when the server belongs to a domain.

Of course the resolution is to specify the Domain Admins security group instead so once you do this the wizard will complete the installation just fine.
