SQL 2012 on Windows 2012 : Install Stuck

My install of SQL Server 2012 on Windows 2012 hung today on
'Enabling OS feature 'NetFx3'
A little searching drove me to this blog post - Error while enabling Windows feature NetFx3

The instructions above show how to resolve it, but you need to add ".NET Framework 3.5 Features" as a feature via the Add Roles and Features Wizard.

Why this couldnt have been detected in the prerequisites part of the install check, I don't know....
