Hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I'm trying to learn how to setup, maintain and then record how-to videos all based on SharePoint 2010 using Windows Server 2012 R2. I'm doing this in my own home, so budget is next to nill. I'll be using trial versions of software but am confused about the actual starting points. Various articles already assume that many items are in place and don't give a lot of directions.

I'm looking to build a SharePoint 2010 Sever with at least three users connected (admin and regular users). I need all the steps from what to install first and configure and so on.

This is going on a completely blank PC so I need steps that include how to set up the Windows Server as well.
