Part 4 - Installation of SharePoint 2013 Server

Part 4 - Installation of SharePoint 2013 Server

I have downloaded the server preview image from the URL The image name file name is “SharePointServer_en-us.img”.  VirtualBox won’t allow mounting an image with .img extension. So I appened .iso in the end of file name and made it SharePointServer_en-us.img.iso.

Start your VM and the devices menu of VirtualBox choose CD/DVD Devices –> Choose a virtual CD/DVD disk file. Select the SharePointServer_en-us.img.iso file and click Open.

You will get a notification on right hand top to “Tap” (which is click) then select “Open folder to view files”. 
Then browse the mounted image file and run the “Prerequistisinstaller.exe”

Prerequisites installer will start. Click on “Install software prerequisites “, then you will find what all components will be installed as prerequisites as mentioned below  then click on Next.
Accept the license agreement and click Next, This will install the required components and also configure them.

Once this is completed it will need a system restart. Click Finish.
