If your Server has a static IP address and its a domain controller (Installed active directory and DNS services) without any error then you should be able to make it a Web Server, don't think if application server is necessity. Anyway it seems like someone else had same problem, but if you go through comments someone solved problem by resetting environmental variables because of permissions issue.

Also check if there's any error in event viewer.


After looking at logs, problem is that your server where you are trying to install SharePoint isn't able to connect to remote domain controller, I would suggest you to go through this link, I am pretty sure it will work :)


Hope it helps.
