I try to install SQL Server 2008 R2 cluster. One time is failed. One time is success. The reason is because inputs during different. Where is the config file to save the inputs from installation, like cluster resource name, .....? is it readable and editable so that I can modify it without reinstall?

Another is: if the install failed at last second, how to install to clean the installation?

Just before you click the Install button in the GUI, it shows you a path to an .ini file that contains all the configuration options. You can copy this file for whatever purposes you need. I don't recall the exact location of it, or if it remains after install, but you can go through the wizard again to have it generated for you. –  Jon Seigel Nov 26 '13 at 14:42
