sharepoint 2010 vhd

  Asked By: Aadesh    Date: Mar 09    Category: Sharepoint 2010    Views: 1495

Can anyone tell me exactly what I need to be able to run this vhd on my
home pc? What virtual pc / server software will I need to install? I am
currently running Vista 64bt with 4gig of ram. This will strictly be a
learning machine.

If you downloaded the VHDs that Microsoft has for learning 2010 then you
won't be able to run them on Vista 64. It requires Server 2008 r2 and
Hyper-V. If you have Windows 7 64 you can boot to a single VHD, but the
downloadable one contains two VHDs (one a domain controller and the other a
server), so again you would need Hyper-V.

You can build your own VHD from scratch on Vista 64 using either VmWare or
Sun Virtual Box, but 4gig of RAM is cutting it pretty close for a virtual
2010 install. You should probably have at least 6 gig if not 8gig even to
build a learning environment.

Ideally you should have Windows Server 2008 R2. RAM is good enough for a
learning machine. You can't run this using Microsoft virtual PC because VPC is
32 bit.

You may use VMWare workstation if you can afford.

I am not sure about Vista 64 bit, but Windows 7 does support SharePoint 2010
after playing some tricks. You will find ample knowlegde about it on the web.
