How to install SharePoint 2010 on the Windows server 2012 OS. Is this possible ?
Any step-by-step information provided by MS?
MS Support reads
Before the release of Service Pack 2 (SP2) for Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010, Microsoft did not support SharePoint Server 2010 in a Windows Server 2012 or Windows Server 2012 R2 environment.
However, SharePoint Server 2010 slipstream media SP2 has now been released, and this configuration is supported in Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
On Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft supports only the SharePoint Server 2010 SP2 slipstream media configuration and not the RTM version of that configuration. For full SharePoint functionality and support, you must have the February 2014 cumulative update (CU) or a later CU installed. Additionally, only a new SharePoint Server 2010 SP2 slipstream installation that has the February 2014 CU or a later CU installed is supported on Windows Server 2012 R2. Microsoft does not support a Windows in-place upgrade for this scenario.
