I would like my Installation setup package to install under normal user. I would like to impersonate as admin during the installation and install the software, as the installer setup requires admin privileges to install SQLServer2008 Express software.

Is there a way that I could setup this feature [Impersonation] during the install?

Is there any alternate mechanism that I could achieve this?

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, but if your setup requires admin privileges it would trigger the UAC elevation dialog. As a result the InstallExecute part of the install would impersonate as LocalSystem.
