The fact that you are getting the roles greyed out means either you have the service pack already installed, or an incomplete installation on the server. The service pack install would not normally show you the roles.

It sounds like someone may have attempted to install clustering at some point and as it isn't complete the server is now stuck.
This is the TechNet guide on removing the clustering services:

It will cause downtime.

thank you Simon...that is exactly the case...it was prior installed and not complete.
I have rolled back re- install and it worked just fine. Again thank you!
