I can't get R2 Express (x64) installed from the command line... x86 using this same command line works fine, just x64 is broken.
/q /ACTION=Install /SECURITYMODE=SQL /SAPWD="MyStrongPassword" /INSTANCENAME="SQLEXPRESS" /FEATURES=SQLEngine,Replication,SDK /SQLSVCACCOUNT="NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE" /SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS="MyComputerName\MyUserName"
Everytime it fails with:
