Sccm 2012 install error

Following the windows-noob setup guide at:

And came across this unusual error during setup:

Fail to create SQL Server Certificate, ConfigMGR installation cannot be completed.

Looking at the setup logs I see this only slightly more descriptive error:

Failed to get SID for user (NT Service\MSSQLSERVER)
ERROR: Failed to get the buffer size for LookupAccountName. Error = 1722

After much googling found this link from Yuri that suggests temporarily changing SQL to run under local system instead of the NT Service\MSSQLSERVER account. Worked great!
