I'd start here with the suggested troubleshooting steps.

Installation Error 0x80070643 - Microsoft Community

One of the more common reasons for a failed MSE install is having had some other security software on the computer. Each security vendor usually provides their own official uninstall tool. Failure to use the tool can result in bits and pieces (remnants) being left behind which can interfere with a clean install of a new product. Singular Labs has compiled a list of official uninstallers. If you had a security product installed before MSE I'd run the appropriate uninstaller(s) after reading the info file(s).
