SharePoint 2013 – Install Notes

Below is a quick brain dump from a one machine VM install for development.   Getting the install media folder correctly populated with various patches, offline prerequisites, and correct XML configuration for AutoSPInstaller was key.   Once that folder was ready, everything ran very smoothly.  Smile

  • IE 10
  • All windows update complete
  • Promoted to domain controller as “DEMO.COM”
  • Created 1 service account for SQL:
