SharePoint 2013 does not support Windows Server 2008, only Windows Server 2008 R2:

The 64-bit edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter or the 64-bit edition of Windows Server 2012 Standard or Datacenter

Web Server edition is not supported as well...
