Installing SharePoint 2010 on Windows Server 2012


With the release of SharePoint 2010 SP2, you will now be able to install SharePoint 2010 on Windows Server 2012!!

If you check out my previous article here:, you will notice that were some hacks/workarounds in order to get SharePoint 2010 to install on Windows Server 2012.

However, with the release of SP2, Microsoft has included the native ability to install on Windows Server 2012 and thereby reap the benefits of hosting on IIS 8 (vs. IIS 7 and IIS 7.5).

Since Microsoft now ships a new PrerequisiteInstaller with SP2, simply slipstreaming the SP2 Updates into the original SharePoint 2010 media will not be enough.  Instead, you will need to grab the latest SharePoint 2010 with SP2 DVD media from MSDN Subscriptions.  MSDN Subscriptions.

Now you can enjoy deploying your SharePoint 2010 installations on Windows Server 2012!!
