I just bought a new pc that has windows 10 home on it. I have my product key for windows server essentials. How do I install the OS windows server essentials on this pc? Can I create installation media from the microsoft website? Where is the ISO located? Is there a link online that I can go to to download the software to a usb?

    Please check if below link helps with Windows server essentials ISO download.

    Since Windows 10 home could not enable hyper-V to create a VM, we could prepare another new hard disk drive for installing the Windows Server 2019 Essential on the PC. By this way, we could keep the original Windows 10 home system in the old drive.

    Below links are for your reference to create server 2019 essential USB key.

    After creating the USB key, you could plug the USB to your new PC. If your BIOS settings are properly set-up, the computer will directly boot to the Windows Server 2019 Essential installation screen.
