Step 3: Configuring install options

It's possible to install Windows Server using a USB stick or traditional optical media. One of the first things to configure will be the language, currency, time and keyboard options,

A second dialogue box is displayed which shows an "Install Now" button. This needs to be clicked on to progress the install.

From here, you need to choose what type of installation to make. While Server Core has a very small footprint and good for usage where a GUI is not necessary, we shall install a full GUI with the server OS. Next click on the check box to accept the licence terms. Click next. As this will be a fresh install, we will choose "Custom: Install Windows only (advanced)" as our option.
