Install SQL Server 2012 issues

I had many issues trying to install SQL Server 2012 on Windows 2012 VM. My first issue was trying to setup Data and Log files on different drives on the server. I was able to get past that issue but now I am getting permission issues. I am an Administrator on the domain, so I should have all permissions to do everything. I log into SQL Server with Windows Authentication and the Database Engine comes up fine but when I try to connect to SSAS or SSIS I get a permission denied error. I looked st the Analysis Services Service and tried to start it and I cannot. It gives me a generic error that says that it stops when its not being used. I have a feeling that during the install I should have done a mixed mode for the logins. I dont really know what to do or what will be the best way to do this but I need FULL access for my login, or create a group, with me in it,  with full permissions to do everything. Can someone simplify this for me? I can uninstall and re install if I need to so any help would really help me out big time....
Thanks everyone
John

You do need mixed mode login for this. If, after re-installing with mixed  mode your domain account doesn't have the access that you need, then login as "sa", and grant yourself or your group whatever permissions you wish.

integration services require  that you are a LOCAL admin on the machine

Domain Admins are automatically local admins... unless the machine is not in the domain.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I have admin privs on everything. I had a problem with my install and because it is a VM setup he had to fix a setting that would allow me the access. Now I am having similar issues because if Im admin and my login in SQL, using Windows Authentication, I set myself up with sa permissions and the ability to do anything I need but somehow I cant run certain things. Would the system Services accounts have to be setup to run? Would I need to configure      
NT Service\MSSQLServerOLAPService account(or any of them for that matter) for it to run the service?

Just set the services to automatic. After that, you may have to log into SSAS and SSIS with sa to give yourself rights to those modules as well.

Im not sure how to login as sa because im using windows auth and didnt install in mixed mode. Is this something I would do? I am able to start the Analysis service if I do it with local instead of network service(?) Also, I gave my login  every permission that sa has but I wanna get this right so let me know what you think I should do

Yeah. You really should re-install with mixed mode.
