Super quick install of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials.
This video is going to quickly go over a super simple and fast install of Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials.
In a real-world enviornment, it’s not normal to install a server operating system within VirtualBox virtual environment. I am simply using VirtualBox for demonstration purposes for this video series.
1. Download the Media
Download the Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 media.
2. Configure RAID
Because I am not super rich with physical servers growing on trees, I am unable to walk you step by step on setting up a RAID. This one you will have to research on your own.
Sorry everyone, as much as I would LOVE to have a newer-style server with some actual awesome storage, it’s just not possible in my current situation. One day it will happen though, and it it does, you better be ready for some awesome detailed tutorials!!
3. Install Operating System
Insert the DVD and run through the super-simple install process. Follow the prompts and you will be good to go.
