Trouble installing sharepoint 2013

Hi, I'm having trouble installing sharepoint 2013 on Windows server 2011

When trying to install the prerequisites it fails to install all of the packages.
I've tried doing this twice and it always fails and asks for a restart

Thanks in advance

Does your server have internet connectivity?  If so, does it go through a proxy?
Justin SmithSr. System EngineerCommented:
First of all make sure you are connected to internet.
After read this question i also had the same issue, may be good to give  a shot.

We found that it didnt like being installed on a Small Business Domain Server so we switched to a different Server running Server 2008 and it all went fine.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

We read that installing on a Domain Server was not a good idea so tried a different server on our network and it installed fine.
