More than once, I have made the mistake of installing Windows 2008 R2 with a full GUI, when I really just needed the Windows Core flavor. Now the only supported way to fix that was a complete rebuild. Argh
Worry not anymore! With Windows Server 2012 there is an option to seamlessly switch back and forth between the GUI and Core modes. Gilson Banin, our fearless PFE from Brazil has described the process in his blog post. Yet another quality tidbit from Microsoft Premier Field Engineering!
