SQL Server 2008 Cluster: The current SKU is invalid

I was trying to add a second node to a SQL Server 2008 Cluster but it fails with below error:

The current SKU is invalid.

After searching net I got suggestion from  many blogs that launch setup using command line 
but I got one easier solution:

Copy Setup Files to second node and launch setup from there.

Trying to add the 2nd node to the second SQL failover cluster instance I got again the problem and the solution is: 

Copy the key from DefaultSetup.ini and delete file, then retry to install 2nd node and enter the key manualy.

  1. Even i have another solution. I had applied Service pack 3 (SP3) prior to add node and it worked perfectly fine.
