Windows server 2012 R2 evaluation copy install stuck at 35%

I’m installing a virtual Windows server because I’m taking a server class and want to get my hands dirty working with the software so I can actually learn this.

I’m following the instructions from the guy who wrote the textbook I’m using, by following his youtube video.

I am using VMware, just like featured in the video I linked.  I ALWAYS get stuck at 35% and then I get an error message.

The ISO I’m using is this:  9600.17050.WINBLUE_REFRESH.140317-1640_X64FRE_SERVER_EVAL_EN-US-IR3_SSS_X64FREE_EN-US_DV9.ISO
