Book Content (Introduction)

First edition of this book was published in 2009 and VMware was used to demonstrate the installation and configuration of SharePoint 2010. VMware can still be used but Virtual Box has gained lot of popularity over the last 2 years. Virtual Box is owned by Oracle and is free. It is easy to use and configure. Most of what is written in this updated edition works for both VMware and Virtual box. I have added new content where necessary. The content has been modified to work with new downloads. New links have been provided through-out the book where needed.


This step by step guide shows how to install SharePoint 2010. Each step shows a screenshot that makes understanding the step easier. Host computer used during the preparation of this guide was a Windows 7 (64-bit) machine. Guest machine used was Virtual Box 4.1.6 r74713 with Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit).  


The book lists hardware and software requirements. It has up-to-date links to download necessary software. Guide gives you tips on what to avoid during the installation. This is the most comprehensive compilation of SharePoint 2010 installation steps.

This book provides users accurate links to download software. Anyone can install SharePoint but installing it the right way, first time is different. Only a few manage to do that. You don't have to waste time experimenting yourself. Learn from the mistakes others made when learning the installation. Save time, time is money!!
