I was preparing a Dev Box for the SharePoint 2016 and thought of sharing the same with the community.

1. We can download and install the SharePoint 2016 from the below link.

2. The installer is an EXE/MSI which can be double clicked to start the installation.

3. The installation is straight forward and the required components will be downloaded by the EXE itself. The prerequisites for the SP2016 can be found in the earlier article.

4. Once, the installation completes, start the configuration wizard.
