Step 4: Installing the OS

The installation process will now ask where Windows Server is going to be installed. We shall install the OS on the primary partition. It's important to note here that the Drive Options link will allow you to set up and configure any other drives attached to the server.

The disc will now install Windows Server to your hardware. How long this process lasts depends on the specifications of the server. Once finished, you will need to enter an administrator's passed for the newly installed OS. Type this in and click on Next.

Note that Windows Server 2012 now uses the new ReFS file system for all created partitions. ReFS is a new and improved version of the NTFS file system.
