I can see that Server 2012 R2 should be a supported operating system, however when trying to install 7.3 on Server 2012 R2 Standard, i get a prompt that the operating system is not supported.
I can run this in compatability mode back to Windows 7 which gets me past that error then i run into a diffferent issue with SQL.
Is anyone else expiriencing problems with Server 2012 R2. I cant believe that its unsupported?

If i look at the supportmatrix 2012 R2 is supported on the following versions:
Latest Software Release Support
- Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard, Datacenter (CMS and Managed Node)

You can read about this on the following URL:
When you read the first link it says that the Essentials version is not yet supported.
Hope that helped.

I had the same issue you described but I was able to fix this by doing the following:
Download and install the 64bit version of SQL Express 2008 R2 SP2.
Enable TCP/IP in the Network Configuration in SQL Server Configuration Manager (you may also need to add port 1433 to "IPAll" in the IP addresses tab while you're in TCP/IP protocol settings).
