We are facing big troubles installing SQL server 2012 on Windows Server 2012. Please see the screenshot.
postimage . org/ image /njh5rkstn /full/
postimage . org/ image /7k7a93vxv /full/
postimage . org/ image /n59j7bu7p /full/
Please remove spaces as I was not allowed to post link or images here for some reason.
After this screen, I get no error whatsoever. The installing just silently goes away as if I never clicked anything to install. No error or no success. We've already downloaded the setup from different locations to make sure the setup isn't corrupt or the files aren't missing. We've already tried doing several things installing .Net 3.5 etc. None of them fixed the issue.
This is the summary file

Could anybody please let me know the issue.

Please disable any security software or antivirus software.
Verify there is enough space on the disk drives.
Verify the drive is not encrypted (bitlocker, etc.) or compressed.
Disable .NET Framework 3.5 using Program and Features and enable it again.
Uninstall SQL Server Setup Support Files and SQL Server Native client using control panel.
Hope this helps.
