I have installed SharePoint Server 2013 in a Windows Server 2012 R2-based environment.

I am getting many issues. After the installation site pages library, or any other document libraries created are not working.

When I navigate to the pages library, or site pages library or any custom list created, it shows

Sorry, something went wrong.

Is this because SP 2013 RTM version is not supported in WIN 2012 R2 OS?

UPDATE: My SP 2013 Version :15.0.4569.1506 I checked the build numbers, 15.0.4569.1506 is for SP1 only. Now I wonder why, i am getting the errors for doc.libs, new apps, home page url etc.

  • I just finished yesterday a two-server-farm with SharePoint Server 2013 on Windows Server 2012 R2. Everything worked. I used autospinstaller.com for installation.

    For 2012 R2 you should need SharePoint 2013 SP1 for it to even install without hacks? Pretty sure it is not supported prior to SP1 anyway Nov 26, 2015 at 14:26

It is not supported to install SharePoint 2013 RTM on Windows Server 2012 R2.

It was supported first with the release of the SharePoint 2013 SP1 slipstream release.
