Windows 2012R2 install issue on VMware 5.5 Virtual Machine

Brand new setup of VMware 5.5 Esxi, created a virtual machine and can bring it up. Trying to install windows 2012R2 server from an Iso I know works since I used it a few days ago to create a DC. It comes up and begins to install but acts like it's doing a windows server upgrade rather then a fresh install and then fails. I tried recreating the VM a few times but doesn't seem to help. Also to note I have to do this running the windows client since I can't get VCenter to install on my laptop and only other machine I have currently is a DC.

Seemed to be a problem with the ISO which is odd because I have used it before. Thanks for the links I will review them as well.
