Hi Guys,


I purchased a server from dell without not OS, and i bought my windows server 2012 standard R2 from microsoft, and Installed the OS  and changed administrator password,

after entering the password, I got the black screen with command prompt,
I also tried doing CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to task manager and entering explorer.exe but this did not work

I also tried installing the OS on my VMWARE V9 and same black screen with command prompt.

any ideas what can cause this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help

so, you have installed core version?
if so, in command prompt type powershell and press Enter
then, in powershell execute next command:
Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra

Open in new window

when installation is finished execute following command for reboot:
shutdown -r -t 0

Open in new window


after reboot GUI should be there!

Are you installing this on VMWare?
If yes, try clicking launch virtual machine console button to view the console in vsphere client. The button looks like below:

Sounds like you installed the server core version.  I would try a reinstall and verify the selection when installing server 2012
