In this exercise, you install Windows Server 2012 R2 on a new computer with no previously installed operating system. Mindset
In many cases, organizations purchase servers without operating systems installed—sometimes called bare metal servers—either because they have an existing license agreement or because they intend to purchase the OS through another channel. In these cases, you perform what is known as a clean operating system installation, which is a procedure that creates a new server with its default operating system settings. Completion time
What should you do if the drive on which you want to install Windows Server 2012 R2 already has a partition on it containing an operating system and data you do not need?
What should you do if the Where do you want to install Windows? page appears, but it does not list any drives or partitions?
Installing Windows Server Migration Tools
In this exercise, you install the Windows Server Migration Tools, which enable you to migrate roles from an existing server to a new server running Windows Server 2012 R2. Mindset Compared to an in-place upgrade, a side-to-side migration is a more complex procedure, but usually results in a more stable server configuration. Windows Server 2012 R2 includes tools that facilitate the migration of certain roles, but before you can use them, you must deploy those tools on both the source and the destination server. Completion time
Why can you not install the Server Migration Tools to the server running Windows Server 2008 R2 using the Add Roles and Features Wizard on your server running Windows Server 2012 R2?

Accessing a WSMT Distribution Point
After completing Exercise 1.2, a user on SERVERC, the source server for the migration, can access the installation files for the Windows Server Migration Tools from the distribution point on the destination server, SERVERA. Mindset
After creating a distribution point for the Windows Server Migration Tools on the server running Windows Server 2012 R2, the source SERVERC can access the distribution point over the network, or by copying the files on a portable storage device. Completion time 10 minutes
To complete the challenge, you must install the Windows Server Migration Tools on SERVERC by accessing the shared distribution folder on SERVERA and running the Smigdeploy.exe program with no parameters from an Administrative command prompt. Then, take a screen shot of the Command Prompt window by pressing Alt+Prt Scr and paste it into your Lab 1worksheet file in the page provided by pressing Ctrl+V.
