SQL Server 2008 Add Cluster Node workarounds

I haven't installed/added SQL 2008 cluster node for so long, but just today I had to use 2 workarounds just to get it working. Whew

First workaround, Cluster Validation was good but SQL installer still complained

Setup /SkipRules=Cluster_VerifyForErrors /Action=AddNode

Second Workaround is actuall a MS Bug, where I had to comment out the pre-saved license key in the installer folder and entered it manually instead
