    Hi,

    Thanks for your question

    Please find similar thread for an error code 2147467259 error description: The system cannot find the path specified

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/263964/unable-to-install-sql-server-(setup-exe)-exit-code
    or
    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/answers/questions/1163010/unable-to-install-sql-server-exit-code-(decimal)-2

    As per that thread,

    The error message "The system cannot find the path specified" showed that there are some files of SQL Server basic component couldn't be located. It is possible that these files are corrupted or the access for these files is denied.

    Thank you!
