Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation. Click 'Retry' to retry the failed action.. SQL installation for MS CRM 2011

While i was installing SQL 2008 R2 to install MS CRM 2011 , i faced the below error alert message.

"Attempted to perform an unauthorized operation.Click 'Retry' to retry the failed action, or click 'Cancel' to cancel this action and continue setup"

then if u cancel this it will go ahead with failed status in the SQL engine , so other componets it will install.

so u DONOT click cancel, let that alert be there and do the below and then click RETRY.
then it should go ahead.

just give the account you are using to install as full access to the below folder in the registry key.
run "regedit" command and then traverse all the way to "security".
right click on that and select permissions, then select the account you are using, then click full permission and then click "RETRY", in your alert window. Now it should go smoothly.

In my scenarion, i come to know my OS team has hardened it, so they have even restricted these things for the admin, by using which the OS also installed.

any way after doing this you can give back the "READ" permission to that account in security.
