Installing Windows Setup Wizard using GUI to select regional settings

Use the setup GUI to select regional settings, licensing, and domain information for Windows.
After the text mode of Setup completes, you move into the GUI phase of Setup. Here you will make decisions about which network components to install, the name of the computer, and whether the computer will participate in a workgroup or domain.
After the basic file copy process takes place during the text-based phase, the computer restarts and the GUI mode phase of the installation process begins.
