Vanilla SQL 2014 install to Windows 2008 R2 fails

Hi,

Tried a fairly straightforward install of SQL 2014 to a Win 2008 R2 box that had SQL 2008 on it earlier(but uninstalled).  The only settings I changed from default was the location of the databases to a path on the D: drive.

Tried Googling but found nothing that seemed to apply.

Suggestions?

Thanks much!
