  • Hi Mark,

    Yes, we can but before that.

    What specs does your laptop have? You need at least I would say 8 GB RAM for SharePoint environment.

    Also, you should consider running SharePoint virtual in an Virtual box machine on Windows Server 2012, since this is where it is designed to run.

    Here are the Requirements: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/SharePoint/install/hardware-and-software-requirements-0

    Prerequisites are installed automatically. Especially if you use stand-alone installation there is nothing to worry about.

    You can download an evaluation version of SharePoint Server at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/evalcenter/search?k=sharepoint   

    Thanks & Regards,

  • Hi, Mark,

    Just as Sharath said, You can install SharePoint on the virtual machine in your laptop. It requires comparatively high spec or there will be performance issue. 

    It will be a bit easier if you are using Windows 10 and plan to use SharePoint 2016. Most versions of Windows 10 have the Hyper-V feature available.  And Windows Server 2016 has a new feature called Nested Virtualization.  So you can easily create a virtual test lab consisting of one virtual machine hosting several other virtual machines.

    Here is an instruction of deployment:
