EUserv provides the comfortable VNC installation for the operating system SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12. With this you are able to install SLES 12 using a graphical install wizard and adjust the installation to your liking. You will need a VNC viewer for the installation. Windows users can try UltraVNC or RealVNC for this purpose. Linux users can use Vinagre or TightVNC for instance.
