Installing Windows Features via PowerShell without an Internet connection

As many Windows Server Administrators already know, if you want to install additional Windows Server Features, this usually requires access to the Internet.

Fortunately, Microsoft offers the ability to install features directly from the source media via the -Source parameter such as this: -Source D:\sources\sxs

You can read more about how to use this parameter in conjunction with the Install-WindowsFeature PowerShell command here:
