Shawn is right - uninstall the eval first.

Are you sure you have the Express Edition media? I believe you might need to remove the eval version prior to installing.

Did you reboot between the uninstall and install?

As mentioned in a comment, I would uninstall the evaluation edition. However, when you go to install express, are you choosing to upgrade the instance or install a new instance altogether? If you are going to upgrade the expired instance, I can see why there'd be that error.
