From %mysql_home%\bin try running it first in a cmd window ...
mysqld-nt --console --log_warnings
mysqld-nt --standalone --log_warnings
Once it runs without errors, shut mysqld-nt down, eg by running
mysaladmin -uroot shutdown
from another cmd window, then install the service with ...
mysqld-nt -- install
after which it should auto-start at bootup.
