Here I am struggling to install Microsoft SQL Server.

And, stubborness is not bailing me out.
Take a look at the files
Googled till I bled.
One of things I was asked to do was to take a look at the installation package.
For the RTM, which is delivered as an ISO, we are able to do the following :-
- Mount ISO
- Extract using 7-Zip
Service Packs ( SP ) and Cumulative patch ( CU )
Service Packs ( SP ) and Cumulative patches ( CU ) are delivered as an executable.
To uncompress them, please use the executable file itself and pass along the -extract argument.
