The SharePoint 2013 Preview was released today, and I have had an opportunity this evening to load it up into a virtual environment and check it out.  I conducted this task as a virtual unboxing, to experience the SharePoint 2013 Preview installation process.  I recorded a screencast of this unboxing, and have published this on YouTube to share:

I couple of the key notes include:

  • Read the hardware and software requirements guide on TechNet – there are some big requirements particularly around RAM.
  • The download for the server edition of SharePoint 2013 is over 2GB in size, about double the size of the SharePoint 2010 cumulative updates.
  • I had to restart a couple of times during the pre-requisite installer, not a huge issue.
  • I get to a point in Part 1 where I am about to load Central Admin and my new site collection, and the main troubles that I will show in Part 2 is around the performance of my virtual enviornment, with RAM and disk IO being major problems.

Overall, the process was fairly successful, and I will have second part to release soon which will show further details.
