Sql server 2008R2 standard installation

When installing sql 2008r2 on srv 2008r2 standard ( 64bit) I picked the defaults to install to ( I have 3 drives set up c-install, d-data, e- log files) When its done installing it says 64bit os failed and a bunch of other fails ect, so I am redoing to see if I am doing something wrong. I was hoping to find install instructions w/ pics but only found that with sql 2008. (not R2) I'm sure I will have other install questions, but this is a start.

yours has two options becuase your is a 64 bit machine. the ones with 1 option means they are on a 32 bit machine hence they dont get a choice.
Just leave the defaults options for those two directories and you should be fine.

The one for 2008 only has one installation path at the botton. Its the stupid installation path that is throwing me off and the outcome of the install if I leave it as is (default) This is the image for 2008 as compared to my first post

I did find a 2008r2 step by step w/ images and it also only has 1 shared feature directory ( same as pic above in post) Why does mine have two options?

It does install but says 18 were skipped and one of those being 64 bit processor and 64bit OS. I don't understand why those would be skpped if I have 64 bit. Thats the part that is confusing to me.
Thanks for your help!

can you attach screen shot of what was skipped.
have you also checked the error logs C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Setup Bootstrap\Log
check for the latest date. can you attach your log file too?

I just went ahead and installed with the 2 options since you gave this explanation and I didn't get errors saying it didn't install,,,just didn't install like I thought it should.
