Install Windows Server 2016 TP4 Server Core

With the release of Window Server 2016 TP4 I decided to do another review and a fresh Install to show how to Install Windows Server 2016 TP4 Core edition.

One of the main change In the Install is that by default Windows Server 2016 Is set to use Core Interface and you need to make sure you select the Desktop Experience Interface (I’ll show you below).

First download Windows Server 2016 TP4.

Setup a VM and load the ISO and follow the Installation steps.

Note: This is where you need to make sure you Select option 1 for server core Install.

Set the local admin password

This is the login screen

This is the Core Interface

To configure IP address, hostname, Firewall, Window Updates, etc type
