For developer testing environment we recommend to set up a virtual machine with the following software in such order:

  1. Windows Server 2008 or R2 Standard
  2. SQL Server 2008 or R2 Standard
  3. SharePoint 2010
  4. Visual Studio 2010 Professional

We have configured a Hyper-V virtual machine with 50GB HDD (one disk) and 4GB RAM (6GB is better). It would be good to store the virtual machine on local HDD for better performance.

Additionally it might be handy to use SharePoint Designer 2010 for quick content modifications.

When you are done with the dev environment then proceed with portal deployment using the Installation guide.
