Windows Server 2019 GUI?

    Question

  • Hello!

    Just downloaded Windows Server 2019 Preview, and booted it up in a virtual machine, just to try it. But, there is no GUI. Is there a way to enable it, or does the Preview of 2019 not feature one?

  • there is no such options, only standard or data center.

    it's not the first time i Install Windows.

    it doesn't even have the GUI install interface when you install it "Server Graphical Shell"

    i think the link MS provided is server core

    can we have a link to download the full server ISO not the core.

  • No GUI for me here too and only two options to chose from for installation.

    I got this download too; in fact there is only one download offered

    The ISO I downloaded was 2.8 GB (2939480 KB). Maybe the link points to the core version instead to the full ISO....

  • Hi,

    Please check the button which you enter again.

    Choose language first and download.

    The ISO  was 4.4 GB.

  • Hi,

    I've just downloaded it too, and there is no GUI. I've downloaded 17650. In the install options those Desktop Experience options were not there.

    if need GUI, download 17623

  • When I try to install the LTSC using the iso I'm being prompted for a product key. I don't see any place to get the key from.
