Now we’ll load the Content Pack for SharePoint 2013 based on http://autospinstaller.codeplex.com/ with XML farm configuration file. This will bring SharePoint 2013 Enterprise Edition online with Central Admin, http://intranet.contoso.com/ web application, service applications, and the interfaces needed to see and interact with the Business Intelligence dashboard samples.
Next I opened the D:\ drive with SP2013 install media ISO and manually ran the binary install.
Now we’ll load the Content Pack for SQL 2012 which requires the SQL install media ISO. First I browse for “en_sql_server_2012_enterprise_edition_with_sp1_x64_dvd_1227976.iso” and mount as drive letter D:\. Also, make sure that you only have a D:\ removable drive. Having multiple CD-ROM drives (D:\, E:\, etc.) will confuse the script.
Click OK to being Install.
Reading the file “C:\Demos\SQLServer2012\Script and Setup Guide\SQL Server 2012 Package Installation Instructions.docx” we see …
The Pre-Requisites for this installation are the following:
Windows Server 2012 installed with the AD DS Role for the Contoso.com Domain
Next we need to start loading Content Packs. First I copied the downloads to the local C:\ drive of the VM. The first pack is Active Directory which will create user accounts and service accounts for the later steps.
Next we run “ContentPackInstaller.exe” and browse for “ActiveDirectoryDemo 15.2.2.zip”
Once extracted, we now have the Install button available to execute the scripts. Go ahead and click Install.

We continue the build by installing Active Directory and promoting to the “CONTOSO” Domain Controller. Below are screenshots from installing the AD DS (Directory Services) Server Role from Server Manager. After that we must “promote” to Domain Controller and complete the wizard questions on DNS, NetBIOS, and password values.
