Your OS needs to be 64bit not just the processor

Is the installation process hanging or is it failing with an error? Are there any errors in your event logs?

Does your SharePoint server have access to the internet? As the prerequisites are downloaded. If you want to install SharePoint on a server with no acces to the internet you will have to download them first in another location.

What i know is that windows server 2008 r2 doesnt come in 32 bit, I think that is a typo up in question, Correct me if i am wrong here

Try to run the setup as run as administrator option and share what you see in event logs

Thankyou all for your responses.
I changed to the 64bit OS and this has done the trick. To answer Sabby447 yes you can install the 32bit version of windows 2008r2 server.
