I just downloaded Server "8" beta and installed it on a physical machine so that I can test creating a Hyper-V 3.0 VM.

But it is a core install, without the GUI and it's not clear how to proceed.

Anybody have any ideas on how to use this thing?

c'mon, systechadmin

I'm not a complete moron.  I know how to click on a GUI.

As I stated in my question... I do not have a GUI, of any kind.

I have the blue screen of mystery, see my original attachment.

I'm now using Server2012 so I don't need an answer to this question.  I never did get one, but I do want to close it.
