Why do you communicate without using punctuation?

Let's see if I can do that:

once you restart the host computer you would not be able to log into the domain because the domain server is not running yet it is possible to use cached domain credentials to log on with but I am unsure how to create that cache the first time it would be better if you have enough ram and disk space to create another virtual machine and join it to the domain that is running in your other virtual machine be sure to start the domain server first and you will need to tell each vm to communicate with other vms on the network setup tab

well that went well maybe I will forgo punctuation too :-)

UsernameIssues, I didnt think that it would work I just thought it might be worth a try beacause I created the domain yesterday so that I could sync all of my pcs and I thought about connecting this one to it so that I could use windows without the windows classic theme (I have no idea why windows server only has windows standard and classic and that r2 only comes in 64-bit idiot microsoft lol)

my keyboard is crappy so it is hard to do punctuation and try to get things to type correctly at the same time if you dont go slow you will mess up

I don't think you need domain to do any "sync". What's your exact problem you're trying to solve though creating a domain?

Server editions are optimized for unatended usage by default, which makes sense for servers. No Aero means lower resource usage which optimizes background services, and given that people rarely sees the server screen directly, it's a reasonable optimization. It can be enabled if desired, however, have a look here: Convert your Windows Server 2008 to a Workstation! | Windows Server 2008 to Workstation Manual. Ultimately you can completely replace Win7 by Win2008 to have domain capabilities without needing a virtual machine and wasting more resources.

If you want to go with a VM, the best possible way to do is to make it boot before login. Have a look here: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=18794
You probably would need to use a different method though, as startup menu runs after login (too late). Task scheduler can serve well, with a "on system boot" trigger.
