Windows Server Developer Preview Installation ScreenShots

Windows Developer Preview is out, as well as the Its server counterpart and Im very much excited to try these all out and try to create a lab environment only with Windows 8. Previously I have posted a screen shot run of the installation sequence for the client. Now we will have Windows Server 8, on Hyper-V. So Join me in my quest to build this lab.

So first things first, load up a VM and load the ISO as its installation media

There are now 3 flavors of server installation:

  1. Windows Server Developer Preview (Full Installation)
  2. Windows Server Developer Preview (Server Core Installation)
  3. Windows Server Developer Preview (Features On Demand)

We are used to Full vs. Core but this time, there is a third one called Features on Demand. Its basically core + server manager. Ill try to use full for now, on other instance we will do the Features on Demand.

Accept the license terms (and read if you must)
