Error: "Rule "Windows Server 2003 FILESTREAM Hotfix Check" failed." When installing a SQL Server 2008 R2 Failover Cluster on Windows Server 2012

This error is seen even if you are not attempting to install FILESTREAM support in your SQL Server Failover Cluster. This Hotfix KB937444 is not valid for Windows Server 2012.

To resolve you need to Slipstream the SQL Server service pack into your installation files.

There are three additional steps to perform when installing SQL Server 2008 on Windows Server 2012. Please see this post for all three additional steps.
