    Starting a Windows Server typically involves booting up the server machine and then logging into Windows Server through the user interface or remotely via a tool like Remote Desktop. For Server Core installations (which lack a GUI), you would typically connect and manage the server using remote management tools like Windows Admin Center, PowerShell, or Remote Server Administration Tools (RSAT).

  • How do I install a server?

    To install a Windows Server, you first need the installation media (like a DVD or a bootable USB drive) with the server software. Boot your server hardware from this media, and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup, which includes configuring basic settings like language, time, and keyboard layout, partitioning drives, and setting up an administrator account.
