You should start over. If you're having to edit an MSI for the installation, something went wrong.

  • I read a lot of errors about installing sharepoint with sp1 on win server 2012 R2 ,should I use win 2012 instead Commented Sep 4, 2020 at 20:10
  • No, but in order to install 2012 R2 you need to use the SharePoint 2013 with SP1 ISO. You also need the 2012 R2 media handy for the .NET Framework install.
