Restoring the GUI in Windows Server 2012

If you want to restore the GUI in Windows Server 2012 (and you didn’t install in core mode) you can use the following command

Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra -restore

If you did install core, you need to have the CD / ISO inserted or mounted and append the -Source switch to tell it where to get the files to perform the install of the GUI from. i.e. you enter:

Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell, Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra -Source C:Source -restart
