  • Sorry I can't tell much from that. If you want the Windows Server 2012 R2 evaluation ISO you can get it here.

  • It looks like you have downloaded the evaluation copies of Windows Server and System Center.  If you want to install all of them on your own, you are looking to feast on an elephant - that's a lot of work.

    Yes, you should start by burning a DVD of the Windows Server operating system.  If you wish to install all of System Center, too, that will require about 12-18 virtual machines, depending upon how you want to deploy it.  It can be on done on a single Hyper-V host, or you can deploy on multiple physical Hyper-V hosts that are clustered.

    Rob Willis has developed a phenomenal set of PowerShell scripts and XML files called the PowerShell Deployment Toolkit. http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/PowerShell-Deployment-f20bb605  This assumes that you have your physical machines up and configured with Hyper-V and that there is an existing domain.  You have to fill in some values in the XML files for account names and locations, but after that, it does a completely automated installation of System Center.

    Or, if you want a step-by-step guide on the full deployment, there are some documents you can download.  Microsoft has a program called Fast Track for Microsoft Private Cloud.  It publishes a reference architecture for deploying a Microsoft Private Cloud (which is comprised of their System Center suite).  Third party vendors 'prove' the solution on their technologies.  Cisco has a program called Cisco Validated Designs.  We have taken Microsoft's Fast Track program and merged it with our CVD program, and by working with our partners, EMC and NetApp, have produced step-by-step documents on installing a Microsoft private cloud using either of these storage platforms.  Because these documents are step-by-step documents, then end up being about 700 pages in length.  But, you follow the steps, and you end up with a validated, working system in the end.  You can find these documents for different installation by going to www.cisco.com/go/vspex for the EMC variations or www.cisco.com/go/flexpod for the NetApp variations.  Both assume a completely new installation on Cisco equipment.  But it is possible to make use of the documents on other equipment, except that we obviously could not call that a Cisco Validated Design.

  • If you downloaded an ISO then yes burn it, then boot from it to start the installation. Otherwise post a link so we can see what you downloaded.
