Accidentally removed GUI and Powershell roles
Posted on 2013-01-31
Somehow while removing the Active Directory role and cleaning up some other unneeded roles, I ended up removing the GUI and Powershell components from the server. When it boots now, all I get is that old fashioned cmd prompt. (not the powershell prompt). When I type "powershell", I get command not found. I search for it and it is not present in the windows\system32\WindowsPowerShell folder anymore.
I tried the SConfig utility and it doesn't have an option to restore the gui. I think I now have to mount something and extract and run the install.
Can someone provide some guidance here to help "un-screw" this and get me back to a GUI.
