Installed Roles Checkboxes Greyed out in Windows Server 2008 R2

Hello,
     I went to install DFS on a server today so I went into the Add Roles Wizard in Window Server 2008 R2. However, when  I got the screen which would allow me to select which roles to install/uninstall/edit, the checkboxes for installed servers (which file services is one of) were greyed out and I could not edit them or click next. Why is that?

Right,

Click on Server Manager > Roles > Click File Services > Add Role Services > Add Roles Services with required DFS Components.

Once that's done to install the DFS Management tools

Click on Server Manager > Features > Add Features > Navigate to Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT) > Role Administration tools > File Services Tools > Then check "DFS System Tools"

Have you tried rebooting the server since? Also that could mean there's nothing left to add. Could you post a screenshot for clarification please?

Well, the problem is that there are no DFS tools listed in Administrative tools.
