Please locate the installation log file and provide more information from there

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/database-engine/install-windows/view-and-read-sql-server-setup-log-files?view=sql-server-ver15

Probably it will be located in: C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\150\Setup Bootstrap\Log\Summary.txt

In fact the location of the log file should be visible in the error message you get during the installation, but the link above provides the exact location according to the versions.


If the issue is the last steps after the installation then the SQL Server error log file become useful in addition to the installation log file. This one will give information about errors when the sever already installed like issue to start the service. This file located in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL15.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\LOG\ERRORLOG
