Error SQL Server Express R2 Advanced

I got the following error when installing SQL Server Express R2 Advanced (x86) on my brand new laptop (Windows 7 Business):

The following error has occurred:
Could not find the Database Engine startup handle

My solution was:
1) Remove all SQL components using the control panel.
2) Reinstall using default directory settings, and the (all services use one account) option.
