An error installing Microsoft SQL Server 2008 about .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

if you are facing an error regarding .Net Framework 3.5 SP1 needs to be installed please follow below;
I think the problem is about .NET Framework pre-requirement files have some problem.
Copy your SQL setup media to your local hard disk.
1. Download .NetFramework 3.5 SP1 (which corresponds to your architecture - x86, x64 or i64)
2. Do not try to install it by double clicking it, rather extract it first to a location of your choice by issuing this command
.exe /x:c:\dotNetFramework35SP1\
for example dotNetFx35Setup.exe /x:c:\dotNetFramework35SP1\ (whatever the name is just use it)
3. Open the folder where you extracted the files. You will find a folder named "wcu" open this folder as well. You will find a folder named "dotNetFramework".
4. Copy everything inside this folder.
5. go to SQL2008 setup folder > FOR EXAMPLE x86, x64 > redist > dotNetFrameworks
6. Paste your files there (replace if prompted).
good luck...
