Windows Server 2012 R2 and FileMaker Server 14

Your post

I noticed that the new FMP 14 now requires Windows Server 2012 R2 to run it compared to FMP 13 which only requires as a minimum, Windows 7 64-bit OS. I have clients running only Win 7 but wishes to use FMServer 14. Now they must install on top of their existing OS this Win Server 2012 R2. I watched a video on how to install Win Server 2012 R2 and it was frightening because Win Server 2012 R2 is very confusing! For example after the install, it will ask you what role you want WinServer  2012 R2 to do and there are many high tech choices to choose from which I am not familiar with and in this case I only want it to run or host my FMServer 14. I am not a very high tech person and especially not familiar with WinServer 2012 R2. Can you please help and offer step by step procedure on what to do after I install WinServer 2012 R2 so that my FMPServer 14 will run smoothly? Thank you very much.
