First make sure in power shell you have ran the following commands

 

Import-Module ServerManager
Add-WindowsFeature RSAT-ADDS

Once done restart the server.

 

Then I installed the .net 4.5 framework which can be found here.

You also need the windows managment framework which is here

Then you will need a restart.

Once rebooted drop to power shell and run the commands below, we need to install the Server Manager Module so we can run the subsequent commands.

Import-Module ServerManager

Then ( copy and paste )

Add-WindowsFeature Desktop-Experience, NET-Framework, NET-HTTP-Activation, RPC-over-HTTP-proxy, RSAT-Clustering, RSAT-Web-Server, WAS-Process-Model, Web-Asp-Net, Web-Basic-Auth, Web-Client-Auth, Web-Digest-Auth, Web-Dir-Browsing, Web-Dyn-Compression, Web-Http-Errors, Web-Http-Logging, Web-Http-Redirect, Web-Http-Tracing, Web-ISAPI-Ext, Web-ISAPI-Filter, Web-Lgcy-Mgmt-Console, Web-Metabase, Web-Mgmt-Console, Web-Mgmt-Service, Web-Net-Ext, Web-Request-Monitor, Web-Server, Web-Stat-Compression, Web-Static-Content, Web-Windows-Auth, Web-WMI

You again need to reboot your server. Once done you can now run the setup command from poewrshell and the install will commence.

    Glad to help Sean, hopefully the Alpha and Beta release will be a bit easier to install.
