Windows Server 2012: Installation and setup

Windows Server 2012 comes in two flavours, Standard and Datacenter. The difference between the two is in hardware support and guest virtual machines.

For the purposes of this tutorial we will install the Standard edition. Also, this will be a new install so we won't concern ourselves with backing up applications and data.
