Installing SharePoint 2013 Preview

Installing SharePoint 2013 Preview

This post will cover step by step stand-alone installation of SharePoint 2013 Preview on an AD environment.

Launch the splash file

Click on Install Software Prerequisites

Accept the License Agreement , Click on Next

Installs the prerequisite

Click on Finish, this will reboot the Machine

On Reboot, it will continue the prequisite configuration

Prerequisites Installation Complete, Click on Finish

To Install SharePoint Server, Click on Install SharePoint Server

Enter the Product Key, Click on Continue

Accept the License Terms and Click Continue

This is important , if you want to configure a Farm, Select Complete or Else Stand-alone which will install SQL 2008 R2 Express with SP1.

Note: This has a limitation of 8 Gb on the database. In my case, I have just selected standalone as this was quick look through

Select whatever you would like to achieve and Click Install Now

This Process may consume around 30 minutes

Installation is Complete, Click on Close to Launc the Product Configuration Wizard

Click Next

Prompts that it will stop the listed service during Installation, Click Next

May consume another 20-30 minutes, Click on Finish

Note: If it's a standalone install, it will create the web application on its own and Allows you to select the Site Template

What I noticed is the installation hasn't changed for stand-alone. I'll test the Complete Installation for connecting other servers in a Farm.
