Step by step (aka Dummies or Busy Dev Guy) guide to installing SharePoint 2010 in a virtual machine free eBook (Reg-ware)

SharePoint 2007 Tips, tricks and techniques - FREE book (SharePoint2010) “Installing and Configuring SharePoint 2010”

“Have you tried all online links and are still stuck with the SharePoint 2010 installation? Then you certainly need to download this guide.


This step by step guide shows how to install SharePoint 2010 on a virtual machine. Each step shows a screenshot that will help users to better understand the step. Host computer used during the preparation of this guide was a Vista (32-bit) machine (IBM 64-bit). Guest machine used was VMware workstation 7.0.

The guide lists hardware and software requirements. It has up-to-date links to download pre-requisite software. Pre-requisite software has to be installed in a particular order. Guide gives you tips on what to avoid during the installation. This is the most comprehensive compilation of SharePoint 2010 installation steps.


I liked the focus toward putting this on a VM. Also how compressive it is, I mean check out all those installs covered in to TOC. LOL (Of course you can tell it’s a little dated since for example, PowerShell 2 has RTM’ed, etc, still this seems like a great resource…)
