SharePoint 2016 can be installed on

  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard or Datacenter
  • Windows Server 2016 Standard or Datacenter

And with SQL Server

  • The 64-bit edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2014 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2016 RTM

For more details check Hardware and software requirements for SharePoint Server 2016

Also, based on this official article SharePoint 2013/2016 and SQL Server 2016 Supportability with SSRS fun facts! SharePoint is working with SQL 2016 – n that mean it's not supported with SQL 2016 SP1

  • I saw the disk requirement that indicates OS 80g and another 100g. I don't have so much space on my disk, could this be the reason of failure?
