HELP: Windows Server 2008 R2 Desktop Cannot load after Installation

The full version of Windows is not offered on Kimsufi servers. The version you have installed is most likely Windows Hyper-V, which does not have a desktop environment.

If you wish to use Windows with a Desktop, you would need to order a server from SoyouStart or OVH, our other brands. Then you can add a Windows license for $25/month.

Hi everyone. I am a pure newbie.

To make it clear, the problem is: I chose to install Windows Server 2008 R2 on KS-3C right after purchase. However, after trying to log on with Remote Desktop Connection on my PC, it always shows the blue-green blank desktop with a Command line window and an sconfig.cmd window, instead of the Windows desktop.

Even after I press Ctrl+Alt+End to bring up Task Manager, I cannot run a new explorer.exe through Create New Task to see the conventional desktop.

Can anyone help me solve this? Many thanks in advance.
