SharePoint 2013 is Running at my Home System Now

SP 2013 is at my home now:

It took me three days to make it happen, but yes I have got SP2013 Foundation Preview running on my system.
It is not that tricky that I thought it going to be, actually if we struggled during 2010 and know very well the right ways of installing SharePoint on  a 64 bit environment then it won’t be a big deal this time as we are habitual of certain issues.

So here Is how my first 2013 site  SharePoint foundation site looks like:

My Current System Configuration:

1)Windows Server 2008 R2

2)Sql Server 2008 R2.

3)VS 2012 RC

4)SharePoint Foundation 2013.

How I made it happen:

1)I downloaded SP Foundation from here:

2)Next I Downloaded SP 1 for Windows Server 2008 R2, which is require for SP2013 install from here:

Next I ran the Pre-requisite for SP2013 , if you find any issues with pre-requisite then suggest to follow this blog, which describes awesome powershell scripts to get them all, it helped me too:
