I was installing SQL Server 2008 on a Windows 2008 cluster the other day and I received and error: ‘The current SKU is Invalid’. So I went looking for the resolution. I came across a blog post by Vittorio Pavesi that pointed me to the answer. I did not take the course of copying the install files to the local server. I was installing from a network share, so I simply moved the file DefaultSetup.ini to a new location and started the ‘Add node to a SQL Server failover cluster’ again and entered the key included on the DefaultSetup.ini manually. The rest of the install went without issue.
