Error-1722-Unable to install 800xA 5.1 (FP4, Rev E) due to Windows Installer Error in VM Ware machine

I am facing Error-1722 :

Unable to install 800xA 5.1 (FP4, Rev E) due to Windows Installer Package Error in VM Ware machine

Windows Server 2008 standard R2 SP1.

800xA : 5.1 / 5.1 FP4 / 5.1 FP4 Rev E

I tried all these 800xA versions installations in VM Ware machine in different (Win 2008 std R2 SP1) machines but facing same error while installaing "BASE SYSTEM Component Installation" after 3rd party installations and unable to proceed further.

I tried Automated Installations and Manual Installations. In all these attempt encounter with same error.

I tried same build 5.1 FP4 Rev E in Windows 2008 R2 DataCenter & successfully able to install it. I think this issue is not with 800xA Build.

Please let me know what is the solution / workaround.

Attachement : Error Scree shot & Log.

Read The Freaking Manual ....

Base versions of 5.1 will not install on Win2K8 R2. Later Revs of 800xA 5.1 support windows 64bit. But you must ALLWAYS check the allowed Windows OS for your individual installation.

Please check VM Ware machine computer properties like Windows properties. It should meet the  basic requirement of that software.
