SharePoint Installation in Windows 7 or Vista is not same as Windows Server 2008. You might have difficulties if you do not follow the proper steps. Here i have been tried to explain how to install SharePoint 2010 on Windows 7 or Vista and configure it.

Assume, Installed OS Windows 7 x64 (as you may already know SP only support 64-bit OS) and Windows update

Install SQL Server 2008

Install SharePoint 2010

You can install SharePoint using the following steps

A. Install software prerequisites

1. Install the Microsoft Filter Pack 2.0 by launching the installer from your extracted SharePoint files:
i.e. C:\SharePointFiles\PrerequisiteInstallerFiles\FilterPack\
FilterPack.msi

 

2. Install the Microsoft Sync Framework Runtime from the following location: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=141237.

 

Indicated as already installed

 

3. Install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client support from the following location: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=123718.

 

Indicated as already installed

 

4. Install Windows Identity Foundation from the following location: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/974405.

 

5. Install Microsoft ADO.NET Data Services Update (KB976127), which is required for the REST support that is part of SharePoint.
 
If you are installing SharePoint on the Windows Vista operating system, install the update from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=
a71060eb-454e-4475-81a6-e9552b1034fc.

If you are installing SharePoint on the Windows 7 operating system, install the update from here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=
79D7F6F8-D6E9-4B8C-8640-17F89452148E&displaylang=en.

 

 

6. Install the Chart Controls (this is not required for SharePoint Foundation) from here: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=122517.

 

 

7. Install SQL Server Analysis Services - ADOMD.Net (this is not required for SharePoint Foundation) from here: http://download.microsoft.com/download/A/D/0/AD021EF1-9CBC-
4D11-AB51-6A65019D4706/SQLSERVER2008_ASADOMD10.msi.

8. Turn on the required Windows features:

 

I did this part by typing the following at the command prompt (using Run as Administrator!):
Note that there should be no line-breaks in this text, so use Notepad to remove them before pasting into CP

start /w pkgmgr /iu:IIS-WebServerRole;IIS-WebServer;IIS-CommonHttpFeatures;IIS-StaticContent;IIS-DefaultDocument;IIS-DirectoryBrowsing;IIS-HttpErrors;IIS-ApplicationDevelopment;IIS-ASPNET;IIS-NetFxExtensibility;IIS-ISAPIExtentions;IIS-ISAPIFilter;IIS-HealthAndDiagnostics;IIS-HttpLogging;IIS-LoggingLibraries;IIS-RequestMonitor;IIS-HttpTracing;IIS-CustomLogging;IIS-Security;IIS-BasicAuthentication;IIS-RequestFiltering;IIS-Performance;IIS-HttpCompressionStatic;IIS-HttpCompressionDynamic;IIS-WebServerManagementTools;IIS-Managementconsole;IIS-IIS6ManagementCompatibility;IIS-Metabase;IIS-WMICompatibility;WAS-WindowsActivationService;WAS-ProcessModel;WAS-NetFxEnvironment;WAS-ConfigurationAPI;WCF-HTTP-Activation


9. If you are installing SharePoint on the Windows Vista operating system, install KB976394 from: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/KB976394/Release/
ProjectReleases .aspx?ReleaseId=357.

If you are installing SharePoint on the Windows 7 operating system, install KB976462 from: http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/KB976462/Release/
ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=3571.

 

On the above, I searched for KB976394 for Windows 2008 Server

10. Navigate to the folder where SharePoint installation files are located and double click PrerequisiteInstaller.exe to start the SharePoint 2010
pre-installation.

 

 

 

B. Installed SharePoint Server

  Navigate to the folder where the SharePoint installation files are and double click setup.exe to start the SharePoint 2010 installation.  Installed single server Standalone using default settings

1. Choose Server Type - Standalone because Complete Installation will not work without Active Directory. So, choose the “Standalone” option to begin the installation of SharePoint 2010

Click Close to run the SharePoint Configuration Wizard when the installation is complete.

At this point I Unchecked the box so the Wizard would not run

 

referencing http://sharepointgeorge.com/2010/installing-sharepoint-2010-privilege-service-accounts/

 

I did:

 

2. SharePoint Setup User Account
This should be a standard domain user account that will be used as the logged in user when installing SharePoint and for when running the SharePoint

 

Products Configuration Wizard. This account must be a member of the Local Administrators group for each server where SharePoint 2010 will be installed.

 

You will also need to create a SQL server login with the following SQL server security roles; “securityadmin” and “dbcreator”.
e.g. aah\SPLogon

 

3. Server Farm/Database Access Account
You guessed it, this should also be a standard domain user account, however we do not need to grant any necessary permissions to this account as this is

 

handled by the SharePoint Setup User Account during the SharePoint Products Configuration Wizard. This is the account that we nominate as the “Database

 

Access” account during the SharePoint Configuration Wizard. This account will be applied against the SharePoint Foundation Workflow Timer Service and

 

the SharePoint Central Administration Web Site Application Pool.
e.g. aah\SP

 

4. Add both users (SPLogon and SP) to the Administrators group on the machine (Start / Administrative Tools / Server Manager / Local Users and Groups )

 

5. Reboot Server

C. Run Configuration Wizard

Configuration Complete and open Central Administration automatically or open from start menu

 SharePoint Create a Default site SharePoint-80 with default port 80

Difference Server Farm or Stand alone

Stand alone: You are doing in installation in a single server

Server Farm: You are installing it as another server farm where others server farm could be installed in another server.
