1. Install Visual Studio 2008 SP1 before you install SQL Server 2008
OR
1. Uninstall Visual Studio 2008, and then install SQL Server 2008.
2. After SQL Server 2008 is installed, you can install Visual Studio 2008, and then install Visual Studio 2008 SP1.
OR
1. Do not install the following components of SQL Server 2008:
-> Management Tools (Basic or Complete)
-> Integration Services
-> Business Intelligence Development Studio

For all the scenarios you can refer to the following KB article:

SQL Server 2008 does not support Visual Studio 2008 without a service pack and Visual Studio 2008 with SP1 installed on the same computer...
