I second Jacob Hoover's comment.
I had a SQL Server install. You can use your custom UI with SQL install, which I think is a better user experience anyway. Here's how I did it for SQL Server Express 2014:
Key="SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL12.$(var.InstanceName)"
InstallCommand='/ACTION=Install /Q /IACCEPTSQLSERVERLICENSETERMS /FEATURES=SQLEngine
/SQLSYSADMINACCOUNTS=BUILTIN\Administrators /SECURITYMODE=SQL /SAPWD="Password1!" /SkipRules=RebootRequiredCheck'
UninstallCommand='/ACTION=Uninstall /Q /FEATURES=SQLEngine /INSTANCENAME=$(var.InstanceName)'
DetectCondition="Installed OR ISSQLSERVER64INSTALLED"
And include in your <Chain> a <PackageGroupRef Id="SQLServerExpress2014_64Bit"/>
