Sharepoint 2010 installation on Windows 2012 is not supported and is only expected with SP2, which does not exist at the moment.

But You can still install SharePoint 2010 using this technet article. It describes installation on Windows 8 Beta, but method works for Windows 2012 too. Also there is a link to useful Powershell script that automates prerequisites soft download and installation:

There is one unterestin workaround from french developer – he cheated a little and swapped ServerManagerCmd.exe file from “System32” folder with its own. This program does nothing but tells SharePoint installator that installation could continue:

namespace Hand.ServerManagerCmdEmul
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{
System.Environment.ExitCode = 1003;
}
}
}
