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:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30345
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:
