Step 4) Create an 'Emulated' ServerManagerCMD.exe and copy it to C:\Windows\System32
This is the part I believe most should be able to get to without assistance, however you'll likely run into issues.
What about site perfomance? Is it ok?
Is it siutable for development environment?
My SharePoint site performance is great - your experience will depend on your hardware setup.
My environment is suitable for development but keep in mind that this is beta software and I wouldn't be doing any work related production development using beta software. You can certainly use it to test the projects you already have and learn the new features of Visual Studio 11 Beta.
I am using this setup to evaluate and gain working experience with a focus on:
---SharePoint development with the Visual Studio 11 Beta
---Windows Server 8 Beta
---IIS 8 Beta
The main objective is to be all ready to go when they all RTM.
Also keep in mind that Microsoft has announced that "later this summer" the SharePoint 15 Beta will be made available. I would encourage everyone to have working experience with the Windows Server 8 Beta and IIS 8 Beta well before the SharePoint 15 Beta so your focus at that time will be specifically targeted on SharePoint.
Thank you very much for your answer and advices!
Have you tried this install with the new SQL 2012 RTM?
I am currently trying it and seem to have trouble after step 4 showing the feature error even after creating the ServerManagerCmd.exe.
Any advice related to this?
I have used my procedure to successfully install SharePoint 2010 on the Windows Server 8 Beta with the RTM version of SQL 2012 (Enterprise Edition). I suspect you may have to retry creating your ServerMangerCMD.exe file.
