can't seem to install sharepoint 2013 on server 2012 r2 std, keep getting error about Appfabric

I installed a fresh install of windows server 2012, no complicated setup or anything at all.
after installing windows, i configured the static ip and remote desktop access, and the computer name, thats it.
then ran the prerequisiteinstaller from the sharepoint 2013 DVD, it showed me a list of all the required packages and updates. i then clicked next and accepted the agreement, then it gave me an error that says "there was an error during installation" and it wouldn't continue. so what i did is install the requirements manually one by one, i downloaded them and installed them. now sharepoint 2013 installation no longer shows me the long list of requirements except the appfabric application. and no matter what i tried, it will not install, or will install but it says it's not configured.

now when i run the prerequisiteinstaller again, i will get an error saying "there was an error during installation, the tool was unable to install application server role, web server (iis) role."

i searched on the internet, may posts say to do different things, and i have spend a whole day trying to figure it out with no luck.

Hi,
if the host os is really W2012 R2 then ensure that your SharePoint install media includes SP1.
Second, please verify that the Windows feature for .Net framework is successfully installed/activated, I had previously issues with this and the web server role tries to activate this feature. Solution for me was to use a dism command to get it installed.
Last question: your host is no domain controller?

from playing too much with it, i reinstalled the OS again now, and yes it is windows server 2012 R2 Standard x64.
now before i do any windows updates, i have my sharepoint 2013, how do i know if my DVD has SP1 or not? and how can i get the prerequisitetool to actually work this time without having to install any of these things manually?

thx

i did confirm that sharepoint 2013 dvd that i have does have SP1 already.
after i reinstalled windows fresh again, i didn't do any updates at all, i didn't even open the browser or anything at all.

exact steps i took to install it successfully:
install fresh copy of windows server 2012 R2 standard x64 > configured my static ip > copied all files from the DVD to a folder on my root c:\sp2013 > ran the prerequisiteinstaller with admin privileges > click finish to proceed to reboot the system > after system started, it continued installation automatically > click finish to proceed to reboot the system again > after system started again, it continued installation then it showed "Installation Complete".
now i installed sharepoint 2013 successfully with no glitches at all.

i resolved my own issue. thank you for helping anyways
