It is obvious that you are facing a hard time with Microsoft SQL Server 2005 on Windows 7 because Ms SQL was released a long time ago. With the enhanced security features and other advanced settings, SQL Server 2005 has several compatibility issues on Windows 7. For example, the failure with IIS Feature Requirement. The security features in Windows 7 is high with User Account Control, so you need to close that service by navigating to Control Panel -> User Accounts -> Turn on or off UAC. Also local users are not added as SQL administrators and you have to add them using SQL surface area configuration.

If you are using 64–bit Windows, you have to download and install .net frameworks X64 2.0 separately.
