Create a Virtual Machine

  • On the Assign Memory screen, don't check Use Dynamic Memory for this Virtual machine. SharePoint 2013 doesn't like this, because it relies heavily on the use of AppFabric Distributed Cache. Instead, use 24 GB as Startup Memory.
  • Hard disk size: use 50 GB, this can always be changed later.
  • Connect to the WiFi virtual switch you've made earlier.
  • Install Windows Server Standard (Server with GUI) - or another one of the GUI friendly server versions.
