    With Server 2012 I want to try the server core install (now the recommended install option). But I'm totally lost. Can you point some n00b guide, just the basics to get started?

    Thanks. :)

    the CORE version has no GUI so unless you know how to use it, it would be useless for you.
    I would point you to install the GUI version instead.

    But he could always learn...

    Honestly, server should never had GUI in first place! But that means that the OS would need to be properly designed for it. Even 2012 is not, there are some bits that will not work on Core, no matter what
