Nested install can be too complex to handle. Not recommended usually.
Which is the first MSI that you want to install? Is it some kind of redistributable setup/pre-req component?
You should try to create a program(using batch, vbscript, .wse or any other) which calls these MSI's one by one using msiexec.
You can then create a self-extracting executable by bundling the MSI's & the executable inside it.
Just make use of the deployment tool.

There are only 2 solutions:
1) Chained installation
2) Nested msi

wrap msi's with msi's then add more msi's and a wisescript then vbscript, should fix issue
