Windows Server 2016 Core and GUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We have recently got a quotation for Microsoft Server 2016 as follow:

    9EM-00124 - WinSRVSTDCore 2016 SNGL OLP 2Lic NL CoreLIC

    Does it mean this software package only install Core version of Server 2016 or we could choose GUI as well during installation?

    I will appreciate any support!

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You could choose one of them during installation.

    When you install Windows Server 2016 using the Setup wizard, you can choose between Windows Server 2016 and Windows Server (Server with Desktop Experience). The Server with Desktop Experience option is the Windows Server 2016 equivalent of the Full installation option available in Windows Server 2012 R2 with the Desktop Experience feature installed. If you do not make a choice in the Setup wizard, Windows Server 2016 is installed; this is the Server Core installation option.

    Note:

    Unlike some previous releases of Windows Server, you cannot convert between Server Core and Server with Desktop Experience after installation. If you install Server Core and later decide to use Server with Desktop Experience, you should do a fresh installation.

    More information about Install Server Core, please refer to the following article:
