I'm trying to configure Sharepoint 2013 and I'm receiving the following error in the configurator:

An exception of type Microsoft.SharePoint.SPException was thrown. Additional exception information: There is no file with URL '_catalogs/masterpage/minimal.master' in this Web.

What could be the cause? How to deal with this?

In the IIS manager I don't see the web application for Sharepoint. Shouldn't it be created by the installer?

    Can you please clarify what you mean by configurator? – James Randal Apr 16 at 2:55
  • How do you install Sharepoint? I would recommend to use AutoSPInstaller it will ensure that the farm is provisioned and best practices are applied. autospinstaller.com – Marek Sarad Apr 16 at 7:03
