Sharepoint 2013 SP1, Virtualbox, Windows 2012 R2

I am trying to install SharePoint on Virtualbox for a testing area.  I have done this before successfully but I am having what appears to be a common problem (a google search provides hundreds of solutions).  The problem is getting the AppFabric installed as a prerequisite.  The prerequireinstaller fails with an error or states that the AppFabric step was skipped.

I have always good luck with EE for solving problems, so let me know what you have found to overcome this problem.  Let me know if you need more details

Thanks
