  • Hi All,

    I had this exact issue and it turned out that it was down to me trying to install SharePoint 2013 on Windows Web Server 2008 R2 this edition is not supported. You mention you are installing on Windows Server 2012 Essentials. The minimum 2008 OS edition supported is Standard I wonder if this is the same for 2012? 

    We did an in place upgrade using the command "Dism /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:YC6KT-GKW9T-YTKYR-T4X34-R7VHC" this product key just activates the trial version you will need to put your own key once the upgrade is complete. Not sure if this is possible for the Essentials edition.

    Would be nice if the installer just told you that the OS is unsuported but I did about 10 restarts before I noticed it was just looping over and over the same thing :-)

    Thanks

    Dave

  • Hi

    I also keep getting looping back but the error I see is the start system was executing this command from command line windows

    "Star "Launch SharePoint preparation tool"  "I:\prerequisiteinstaller.exe /continue"

    then this error pop up

    "Windows cannot find: 'I:\prerequisiteinstaller.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

    I:\ is the drive I mounted to the installer ISO file.

    could that be upon the machine restart, this command run first before the machine can mount the I:\ and that result in prerequisiteinstaller.exe cannot be found.

    If that the case anyone know how to fix this sequence of startup so mount a drive will happen first?

    Thanks

    Swanl

  • This worked for me. I also uninstalled App Fabric before restarting the Prerequisiteinstaller.exe again

  • Hello. I have a similar problem. After the 4. step should I reboot for how long?
