Compatibility error when upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard

I have several 2008 R2 Standard virtual machines that I want to upgrade to 2012. I have all the licensing necessary. However I get an error message during the Windows Setup install during the Compatibility test that says "compatability report, windows server 2008 r2 standard cannot be upgraded to windows server 2012 r2 standard..."

Microsoft states on their website that version 2008 is compatible for the upgrade...any ideas?
