About Windows Server Installation Options

Each version of Windows Server has a different set of installation options. Every version of Windows Server has the option to install the standard GUI, which is called Full Server Installation, Server Graphical Shell, or Server with a Desktop Experience. Windows Server also has several smaller, more efficient options than the standard GUI.

The image below displays the installation options for each version of Windows Server.
