3.1 Installation instructions for Windows Server 2003 R2 DataCenter Edition (32-bit & 64-bit)

To install Windows Server 2003 R2 DataCenter Edition, complete the following steps:

  1. Insert the Windows Server 2003 R2 DataCenter Edition CD into the CD drive.
  2. Turn on the server.
  3. When you are prompted with the message "Press any key to boot from cd", press any key to start the server from the Windows Server 2003 Setup CD. The files are copied from the setup CD. This process takes a few minutes.
  4. When you are prompted to install Windows Server 2003, press Enter.
  5. When the license agreement is displayed, read the license agreement, press Page Down to scroll to the bottom of the screen, and then press F8 to select I Agree.
  6. When Windows Server 2003 Setup displays all hard disk storage that is available on the server, use one of the following procedures:
    • Allow Setup to create a partition: To partition the entire hard disk as one primary partition, highlight "non-partitioned space" for the hard disk drive on which you want to install Windows Server 2003 and press Enter.
    • Create a partition: To create a partition, highlight "non-partitioned space" for the hard disk drive on which you want to install Windows Server 2003 and press C. You are prompted to indicate how much available space to allocate from the non-partitioned drive. Type the amount of space (in MB) and press Enter.
    • Delete a partition: Use this option to delete a previous partition prior to creating a partition using either method above.
  7. When you are prompted to select a file system, select NTFS file system. Setup formats the selected partition and copies the applicable files to the drive partition. This process takes several minutes. The server restarts to the graphical portion of Setup where Setup continues with the installation of Windows Server 2003. During this process, Setup automatically installs and configures devices in the server. This process takes several minutes.
  8. Change the regional settings if you are not installing the server in the U.S. Click Next.  Note: To modify the regional settings after you install Windows Server 2003, click Control Panel and click Regional Options.
  9. In the Personalize Your Software window, when you are prompted for your name and organization, type your name in the Name field and type your organization name in the Organization field. The names that you type are used as default server names. Applications that you later install on the server use this information for the product registration and document identification. Click Next.
  10. When you are prompted for the Windows Server 2003 Setup CD-Key, type the Windows Server 2003 Setup CD-Key in the applicable fields. Click Next. (Setup uses the organization name that you entered previously as a suggested name for the server).
  11. In the Licensing Modes window, select the applicable licensing mode for your organization. Click Next
  12. In the Name and Administrator Password window, when you are prompted for an administrator password and server name, type the server name and password. Click Next. (Setup uses the organization name that you entered previously as a suggested name for the server).  Note: Passwords are case sensitive. Be sure to use a combination of uppercase and lowercase letters with at least one number for your password.
  13. In the Time Zone window, set the current time. To change the date, click the button to the right of the date. To change the time, highlight the value that you want to change and enter the new values, using the keyboard or the Up Arrow and Down Arrow keys. Click NextNote: Windows Server 2003 services perform many tasks that are dependent on the accuracy of the time and date settings of the server. Be sure to select the correct time zone for the server location to avoid problems.
  14. In the Networking Settings window, select Typical or Custom settings. If you are prompted, type the applicable network information. Click Next to install Windows networking components. Note: If the network controller card is not functioning, which can happen with this server, you are not prompted for network information. You can set up the network from Windows after Windows Server 2003 is installed.
  15. In the Workgroup or Computer Domain window, select one of the following options:
    • No, this computer is not on a network, it is a network without a domain.
    • Yes, make this computer a member of the following domain.
  16. Type the workgroup or domain name in the applicable field. Click Next. The remaining operating-system components are installed and configured according to the options that you specified. The display in the left column shows the amount of time remaining until the Windows Server 2003 installation is completed. This process might take several minutes. When Windows Server 2003 Setup has completed installation, the server automatically restarts.
  17. After Windows Server 2003 starts, press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to log on.
  18. When the desktop is displayed and the Windows Server 2003 secondary CD window opens, insert the second CD and click OK to continue the installation. The Security Updates wizard starts. If the server is connected to the Internet, the wizard helps to download software security updates and configures the server to retrieve updates automatically in the future.
  19. Close the Security Updates wizard. The Manage Your Server wizard starts automatically. This wizard helps you to add and configure additional roles for the server, such as File Server, DHCP Server, Active Directory, and DNS. For more information, click Read about server roles in the wizard.  Note: You can skip this step and start the wizard later by clicking Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Configure Your Server Wizard.
