I've been trying to install the prerequisites for Server 2010 but I keep getting errors in the installer.exe

I've tried downloading them manually and using the arguements.txt but that didn't work. I've tried using AutoSPSourceBuilder but I get an error when it tries isntalling officeserver-sp1.

This is the log I get when running the installer:

On error line 10-12 the AutoSPInstaller is trying to locate the PrerequisiteIntaller.arguments.txt which is missing. Rename you arguments.txt to PrerequisiteIntaller.arguments.txt and run AutoSPInstaller again.

It is common to get errors running the installation, but just read the error messages and solve problems as you move along.

I usually run AutoSPInstaller five to ten times on a new server before I get it right.
