After creating new SQL Server failover cluster node, trying to add the 2nd node to the SQL failover cluster, after entering the product key (same key used for 1st node installation), hit next, I'm getting an error: 

SQL Server Setup encountered the following error:

The current SKU is invalid.

I was able to work around it by running setup.exe from command prompt and it bypass this issue.

don't use /q after setup to launch the GUI setup and walk from there. It failed when I use setup.exe /q but works without /q.
