Installing SharePoint Server 2013 on Windows 2012 and SQL 2012

Ensure you have the following before getting started

Setup a basic Windows 2012 Server no frills required.

Setup a basic SQL 2012 instance or SQL 2008 R2 SP1

Create a domain service account with DBcreator and SecurityAdmin rights on SQL 2012 Instance

Download SharePoint Server 2013 from MSDN

*Change IMG to ISO to mount using Hyper-V

Run the pre-requisites tool

Click Next

Accept the terms and of the Licence Agreements and click Next

Server might need a restart, click Finish and the server will reboot.

After the server has rebooted you will be greeted with the above window which will continue the pre-requisite installation

Once this has completed successfully click Finish and Reboot

Go to your SharePoint Server 2013 server image location and run Setup as Administrator by right clicking on Setup.

Click Yes

If you have not yet rebooted after the Prerequisites installation you will need to reboot before the installation can complete

Add the SharePoint 2013 Server Key


Accept the terms of the agreement

I have decided to install a complete solution onto a pre-existing SQL instance

The installation will begin and finish quickly -+3 minutes

After the installation a configuration is required.  Click close to continue with the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard

Click Next

Click Yes

Create a new server farm and click next

Add the Database server alias/instance

Add the SharePoint Config Database name

Add the Username provisioned earlier with the DBcreator and SecurityAdmin rights

Supply the password and click next

The next setup is to add a Farm Password

I like to specify a manual port number in order to access the Central Administration from any machine and 2723 is my signature deployment port.  Click next to continue to the installation

This took -+ 10 minutes, I would recommend a drinks break at this point.

Once this has been click Finish

This should open up the following Central Administration view.
