I'm attempting to install Windows Server 2012 R2 onto a PC with Windows 8.1 Pro and Hyper V enabled. I have the virtual switch set up and I've downloaded what I believe are the server files from Microsoft's website:
Windows Server 2012 R2 Files:
I did unzip SC2012_R2_SCDPM_EVAL.zip and placed those files into a separate directory.
However, there is NO clue as to which file is which and for what. They just toss them all together onto a page and hope we can find our way.
But even worse I have no idea if what I really should be doing at this point. So, what do I do next? What comes first, which file? I want to make certain that the server is available at all times to the public internet but have no idea in which order to install, not a clue. And I can't seem to find help on the MS site and I've spent the last couple hours looking at blurry YOUTUBE videos and scrolling through technical info once the server is installed, but not exactly how to do it on to Win8.
I'd certainly appreciate someone giving me block outline of what comes in the next few steps so I can get going.
