What is the best way to start for the host? I'm debating whether I install ubuntu server with a gui or not. My concern is how to install windows guests. I'm looking to virtualize several of our windows servers. I only have experience with virtualbox so am not sure how you go about installing a gui guest on a host with none.
You can use a web interface , such as what is offered on Proxmox, that might be your best option.
#2 would be to VNC in from another machine. KVM has a built in VNC server.
There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
