After wasting 2 attempts, did bit research on google, found somebody mentioning IE doesn’t download the DPM from Volume Licensing Center properly. Here is the community article https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/8f6a8a0d-c1ed-4f4d-b71d-7433070a771b/fresh-2012-r2-install-error-4378?forum=dpmsetup.

 

Earlier I have downloaded this ISO from our Volume Licensing Center using Web Browser method. Then tried with Google Browser and installation went thru properly

Funny part is this issue is reported in MS Community portal in early 2014. And it is going to end of 2014 but MS didn’t fix their volume licensing content distribution network binaries for this tool.

If you are facing below error during DPM, installation make sure uninstall & while re-installing, supply Domain NETBIOS name instead of Domain FQDN in Prerequisite Page.

I have no idea why Microsoft Dev folks did their coding like this. If it is required they could mention in the prerequisite page itself. I ended up wasting 2hrs for this.

Correct Credential Inputs by putting NETBIOS name
