How to set a static IP address in Windows

To access the Installation Console, you need to manually set the IP address of your computer to 169.254.0.2. 

To change the computer’s IP address in Windows, type Network and Sharing into the Search box in the Start Menu and select Network and Sharing Center when it appears. If you are in Windows 8.x it will be on the Start Screen itself. If you’re in Windows 7 or 10 it’ll be in the start menu.
