Complete SQL 2012 Demo Build Script

There is no need to download the 28GB BI Image X (which at the time of this writing hasn’t been updated to SQL 2012 RTM).  There are instructions on how to build an all-up SQL 2012 and SharePoint 2010 demo VM with instructions for configuring all of the latest SQL 2012 tools including DQS, MDM, PowerPivot for SharePoint and more.  The full instructions are here.  This is a great way to familiarize yourself with a full deployment of the latest BI software from Microsoft.

Here’s the summary from the link above:

This how-to article will guide you through the process of building a Hyper-V virtual machine with Microsoft SQL Server 2012, the latest Visual Studio 2010 development tools, SQL Server Data Tools (SSDT), and an assortment of other software products to create a test environment ready for testing and product demos.

Hi Josh,
Are there any updates on the ImageX? My database just expired and I cannot run it? The instructions that you lead to are quite extensive! Any information that you may have would be appreciated!
Thank you,
