I am about to install Sharepoint 2013 STD.  I would like to do so on a Server 2012 R2 OS.  I am reading that it is not supported, but Server 2012 is.....

Is that truly the case....

Also, can you provide any good walk-thru's for installing and configuring a basic setup....  I will be install all of the different roles on the same VM.

To answer your first question, No.  However, according to the software requirements of Sharepoint 2013 -
Windows Server 2012 R2 is only supported on a SharePoint Server 2013 Service Pack 1 environment. For additional information about Windows Server 2012 R2 support, see SharePoint 2013 SP1 support in Windows Server 2012 R2.

The long and short of it is this, if you have Sharepoint 2013 with Service Pack 1 media, then you can install it onto a Windows 2012 R2 Server.

As for installation instructions.  Before you start your Sharepoint 2013 SP1 install, Richard Skinner points out -
I’ve found that the prerequisite installer within the SP1 media isn’t fully compatible with Windows Server 2012 R2 as it errors when enabling the Web Server and Application Server roles.  In order to install the prerequisites, open PowerShell as an administrator and run the following commands, updating the sources parameter to point to the SXS directory on your Windows Server 2012 R2 media.

He also points out -
In order to use Windows Server 2012 R2, download the SharePoint 2013 SP1 ISO from MSDN or Microsoft Volume Licensing as slip-streaming SP1 into non SP1 media is not supported.  Installing SharePoint 2013 on Windows Server 2012 followed by SP1 and upgrading to Windows Server 2012 R2 isn’t supported either.
From there you can use the following guide:
