Server 2012....promoting to DC....One or more prerequisites failed. Please fix these issues and click "Rerun prerequisites check"

I have read many articles on this and can't seem to complete the promotion of my new 2012 server to domain controller.

Here is the script

# Windows PowerShell script for AD DS Deployment

Import-Module ADDSDeployment
Install-ADDSForest `
-CreateDnsDelegation:$false `
-DatabasePath "C:\Windows\NTDS" `
-DomainMode "Win2012R2" `
-DomainName "mydomain.com" `
-DomainNetbiosName "PDC01" `
-ForestMode "Win2012R2" `
-InstallDns:$true `
-LogPath "C:\Windows\NTDS" `
-NoRebootOnCompletion:$false `
-SysvolPath "C:\Windows\SYSVOL" `

The log will tell you what prerequisites are not met. That's helpful information.
