Server 2012 R2, RDS install freezes and errors out, nothing in the logs

I have a brand new VM, 2012 R2, and I'm trying to add RDS, Quick Deployment (everything on one server) and it's freezing at the RDS role service install and then it errors out.

The logs are silent except for a reference to the WID not starting.  When I try to start it manually, it says it failed due to a logon failure.

Brand new install so I'm lost and the event viewer has nothing of use at all.

Anyone seen this?

Thanks

Cliff

Not calling you a liar, but I would bet Event Viewer has something of value.  It has to.

That being said, please see the first post here by Fazza:  http://www.edugeek.net/forums/enterprise-software/115433-remote-desktop-services-installation-failures.html

Did your installation fail after the reboot or before the reboot?

Also, this 2012 server isn't a domain controller is it?  See link in my last post for reference.

Also per the link above in my last post, enable Windows Firewall just to install the role, then disable if you had it disabled originally.

Although your post didn't solve my problem, I have noticed on here that if I don't award points to someone, I catch major heat.

What was happening was that the WID service was failing to start and erroring out with bad log on credentials.  

So, I moved it to a system login and it started and the role installed.

Then I put it back to MSSQLSERVICE and all is good with the world.
