    The installation and profile creation process is basically the same as it was for version 8.0.
    See this previous forum post for my description:

    The easiest way to install the WAS v8.5 trial is to go through the WAS Trial website (such as and choose the IBM Installation Manager method for installation. In this method, you download a version of IBM Installation Manager appropriate for your computer operating system and install it. Installation Manager comes pre-configured to connect to IBM hosted repositories where the WAS v8.5 trial code is stored. After Installation Manager is installed, just start Installation Manager and choose the Install wizard. Next, select the product packages that you want to install. Continue to step through the Install Wizard until the product or products have been installed. After installing WebSphere Application Server, you need to create a server profile using the Profile Management Tool located in the WebSphere Customization Toolbox.

    I provided more detailed installation instructions in another forum post:
