 +====== Switch Windows Server 2012 between core and GUI ======
 +
 +===== Convert initial Core to GUI =====
 +  - Mount the Windows Server 2012 ISO to the host.
 +  - open an administrative command prompt
 +  - mkdir c:\mount
 +  - check your wimfile to determine the correct index for the OS (mine was 4) -the command is dism /​get-imageinfo /​ImageFile:​d:​\sources\install.wim
 +  - dism /mount-wim /​wimfile:​d:​\sources\install.wim /index:4 /​mountdir:​c:​\mount /readonly
 +  - powershell (enter PowerShell prompt)
 +  - install-windowsfeature server-gui-mgmt-infra,​server-gui-shell –restart –source c:​\mount\windows\winsxs
 +  - Unmount Wim (dism /​unmount-wim /​mountdir:​c:​\mount)
 +  - Remove Mount Directory (rmdir c:\mount)
 +Alternative is to install directly from WIM
 +  - Install-WindowsFeature server-gui-mgmt-infra,​server-gui-shell -restart -Source wim:​d:​\sources\install.wim:​4
 +
 +
 +===== Convert GUI to Core =====
 +This will not remove the install files, so you can later use the single line add-windowsfeature commend (without all the steps above). To completely remove the binary files, add **–Remove** at the end
 +  - Uninstall-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell,​ Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra
 +  - Shutdown –r -t 0 (Reboot)
 +
 +===== Convert Core to GUI =====
 +You can do this if you allready have GUI feature files on your system
 +  - Install-WindowsFeature Server-Gui-Shell,​ Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra -restart
 +  - Shutdown –r -t 0 (Reboot)
