Click on VNC (HTML5 VNC or Java VNC) « Do this as soon as the VPS is online
You'll see a black screen saying “Press any key to boot into CD-ROM…” here, click Enter to boot into ISO on prompt
The install will start, you can continue the install as normal from here.
You will need to use the HTML5 or JAVA VNC function from https://panel.crowncloud.net to access your VPS the first time to set the password (as described above) and to setup/enable RDP, after this you can use RDP as normal.
RDP is disabled by default in Windows installs, you'll need to enable it up on your own.
Username/Password for RDP is the password you set during the Windows Install.
Default user is always Administrator and password is the one you set at first install/login.
