This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

  • "Too localized - this could be because your code has a typo, basic error, or is not relevant to most of our audience. Consider revising your question so that it appeals to a broader audience. As it stands, the question is unlikely to help other users (regarding typo questions, see this meta question for background)." – Tom V, Max Vernon, RolandoMySQLDBA, Julien Vavasseur, Phil
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

The error you pasted just shows that the SQL Server couldn't start because some dependent resource such as a name, network address, or disk failed. Can you run cluadmin.msc and see what resource failed to come online? Are there any relevant errors in the application and system logs in Event Viewer? Does the cluster configuration pass validation? – James Lupolt Jul 12 '13 at 12:39

maybe it is too late to help with the error but i bring the solution. This error is related with you don't have permissions in DAC to create "SQL Network Name" to solved check this link -->

Please share installation logs from bootstrap folder or eventviewer logs. – SQLPRODDBA Oct 23 '15 at 9:51
