Hi! I was installing Bex 2012 on a 2008 R2 server, but it freeze in the environmental check... With no error.

Anyone have an idea about this?

Are you instaling BE on this server for first time or you had other version of BE which you have uninstalled and trying to install BE 2012

If that is the case please check below link to ensure it is been completely removed

Also there was an issue with BE 2010 vxvalidator downloaded from the link given in link would help to resolve the issue in BE 2010 see if that help in your case too for BE 2012

Try launching the installer using the local admin account.

Is the OS in English or using another language ? Pls ensure you are using the slipstreamed installer of BE 2012 with SP1a

If you are already using the appropriate installer, please try a silent install using this KB -
