Windows Server 2012 R2I hope you downloaded Windows Server 2012 R2 edition. Now it is time to install and enjoy the new features.

So follow my steps:

  1. The first screen that appears is Windows Setup, select your language, time and keyboard, and press Next, then Install now
  2. Enter the product key, then hit Next
  3. Select between Server Core Installation and Server with a GUI, and press Next. I select the GUI one
  4. Accept the license terms and click on Next
  5. Click on Custom: Install Windows Only (advanced). Because this is my first OS, and I do not want to upgrade it
  6. Click on New, specify the space and hit Apply, then OK to create a new partition. Press Next button
  7. Stay a while for Windows to be installed. The Server will restart automatically twice
