Windows Server Install- How?

I'm looking to install Windows server 8 and 12 into VMware-player to do some training, but I am unsure how the install will proceed. Is windows server a full operating system or will I need to install an OS before I install the Server software?

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

Windows Server is a full OS that is installed like any client OS. Note that there may be a "(Server Core Installation)" option. This installs the OS with no GUI and all administration must be done from the command line. This option is probably best avoided.
