How can I enter the IT field? where can I start if have no work experience in IT?
I have basic general knowledge of computers, I familiar with the existent of certain computer tools such as CMD, Hyper-V, Powershell, using control panel, installing Windows OS, Disk management, Partitioning hard drives, understanding Firewall, I know the basics of CPU, RAM, Video graphics card, the mother board components.. etc. I am currently running windows server 2012 R, on VMware workstation so I can learn active directory, and group policies.
So out of these very basic little knowledge where can I apple for a IT position?

Try to start selling hardware in computer shops. After that, you can move to service responsible for setting or repairing (mainly software) PC. You'll receive experience, extra money. A friend of mine spent 3 or 5 years for this job and became Top manager of IT department of a big company.

You need to be clear about what you expect to do in IT. The field includes everything from programming, to game design, to computer service and support, to call center work for various computer companies. Find out what's available near you, and decide first what you want to do. From your question, it appears you may be interested in servers and OS... find a sysadmin near you who might be interested in showing you some of the field for a system administrator.

You can do a lot of things with your knowledge:

1.) QA ( quality assurance ) for software companies. You don't need to know programming, you just need to have a tech mind and be able to understand some problems that the software has, and report them to your colleagues
2.) Game tester. Similar to the QA position, but mostly dedicated to games. The QA will be a better paid position than game tester
3.) Hardware / software tech support. You will need to reserch into this, but in some tech support posisions you can work from home as well. SSSSame with QA and game tester also.
4.) PC service
5.) After you have worked for companies for several years, start your own business
6.) Grow rich
7.) Appear in Forbes

Good luck, my friend! The world of IT is a marvelous one, and I truly hope that you will find your bliss and make a killing with it!

Best of wishes,
