Hi Guys,

As promised, here is a basic guide (see pdf attachment) for non-IT experts to install Windows Server 2016 Core. If, like me, you have some reasonable computer knowledge but are definitely not an IT expert, then this guide could be of some help to you. I actually compiled it for myself so that if I ever needed to reinstall WS2016Core I would at least have some reference to help do so. Going into server core can be pretty daunting at first and I often wondered what the hell I was doing out of my depth!

Audiophil's guidelines for AO helped me to pluck up the courage to try and set up WS2016C. So I guess that after successfully installing WS2016C, it's with happy ears that I can share this simple guide on this forum in the hope that it will help others to get started too.

Thanks for this Jogar. Life is busy at the moment and I don't really have time to try a Core install. I will retain your guide until later this summer when I have a few weeks leave from work
