Hi,

I have configure this Windows 2012 Core server on a vm, used this guide: http://blogs.technet.com/b/tommypatterson/archive/2012/11/29/installing-windows-server-2012-in-core-mode-step-by-step-part-ii.aspx
Network is ok, rdp, name of server.

Please advise howto:

*manage/configure from a Windows 2008 R2 server and Windows 2012 server (from which I work).
*configure RAID5 on 3 SATA disks
*hyper-v
*domain controller
* install Office
*activate license Windows 2012 Core
*know howto activate the prompt (clicked away the prompt so screen is black now)

Is there some step by step guide with screenshots …. that would be handy.

Why not install Full GUI, and remove after use?

as for RAID5, you will need to install the drivers for your storage controller.

or enter the RAID BIOS at POST BOOT and create your RAID.

Oh, so that is possible apparently (http://www.howtogeek.com/111967/how-to-turn-the-gui-off-and-on-in-windows-server-2012/)?

Isn't it polluting the system: installing via gui, then going to core? Otherwise I might switch over some times.

I wonder how much the gui versus the core version helps in terms of resources? Is it worth the effort?
Btw, I might run terminal services on the server, so core is not an option then(?).

Terminal Services requires a GUI!

It's not "polluting the system" the moment you enable "Hyper-V" e.g. by adding the role, the OS part, really becomes a VM in itself! hosted on Hyper-V.
