Trying to install 2012 R2 on a PowerEdge R320 RAID1 SSD
Installing for USB I installs and then after a reboot during the in stall I get the screen
"Administrator's password must be changed" after I change it, it asks for my password so it can boot in
what I get is a black screen and a c:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe window

it's curser is blinking on c:\Users\Administrator
If I close this CMD all I get is a curser and black screen. I can do a "CNTRL-ALT-DEL"
it brings up Windows Server 2012 R2 screen with options: Lock, Switch user, Sign off, change a password and task manager"
maybe I have a graphics setting issue????

Any advise is appreciated
