Installation Of The System
The Server Core Installation works just like a "normal" installation: the computer boots up and setup loads from the DVD. Just as in Windows Vista, the graphic interface shows up immediately.
Selecting the keyboard layout
The correct setting of the keyboard language is important, since the Core Installation can only be controlled by command prompt. Of course, you can always change the setting later.
Next comes the step where you select the core installation.
Selecting the core operating system
After confirming the license agreement, you can now only select the partition on which the server should be installed. No other options are available.
Selecting the hard drive and partition
After copying the files, the computer is automatically restarted and the installation is complete.
