Tow points very differents, first this site is on-line with SPS2010 (Yes !) Second Windows 7 for SPS2010 (I do it, that is a great solution for tests).
Today I set out to install SharePoint Server 2010 on my local machine running Windows 7 Professional. This was one of the things I was most looking forward to about 2010, being able to develop locally is not only great for the developers out there, but also for us SharePoint Branding folks, i.e. web designers. It makes life SOOOOOO much easier when you don’t have to wrangle virtual machines in order to build out some master pages! So, needless to say, I was really looking forward to making this setup happen for myself.
So, there is an article you can follow on MSDN, which guides you through MOST of what you’ll need to do w/ the current beta that’s out there. However, when it comes to getting the configuration wizard to complete successfully, you’ll need to follow some extra steps, unsupported ones at that. Until the Hot fix comes out this is the only way you’ll get your installation up and running.
