Windows licensing fees are expensive and the requirements are much higher than Linux. So on a VPS with the same configuration, the Windows 10 system is much more expensive than the Linux system.
DD is a disk read/write command under Linux system. It can mirror the remote operating system, for example, write the Windows 10 image to the hard disk for installation.
Advantages of installing OS with DD commands:
The most popular DD script is Vicer‘s one-click script, which is powerful.
The Vicer script can be used to automate Windows 10 installation without VNC mode or rescue mode. After installation, you can log in directly to the system through the remote desktop.
Connect to the VPS server via Xshell command, perform one-click installation command
bash <(wget --no-check-certificate -qO- 'https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VxSfaDSb8i9nmULiGt-ZX1pdZlImT_wb/view?usp=sharing') -dd "URL of the operating system image"
The VPS host will disconnect from the xshell after executing the command. The entire installation process lasts approximately half an hour. After the installation is complete, you can use Windows remote connection, or a VNC connection in the vultr backend.

Windows systems aren’t as resource-efficient as Linux, so you need to adjust the virtual memory to increase the memory available to Windows.
The default remote connection port is 3389, and it is recommended that you modify the default remote connection port to prevent being scanned by hackers.
Use the Win+R shortcut to bring up the Run window, type regedit and press Enter to open the Registry Editor.
Here’s where you need to modify the PortNumber :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\Wds\rdpwd\Tds\tcp HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp
Once the modification is complete, you need to add the port number you just modified to the system firewall whitelist.
Open Start Menu -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> Windows Firewall -> Advanced Settings -> Inbound Rules -> New Rule
After the firewall rules are added, restart the system to make the settings take effect.
Use Win + R and type cmd to bring up the command window:
net user administrator [your new administrator pasword]
