George Khalil (Sharepoint George) has made a detailed description on how to Install SP2013 in Windows Server 2012 with SQL 2012 in 2 parts here

I have installed my SharePoint 2013 virtual server on a VMWare workstation 8.0

Here are some quick steps on what and how I have installed.

  1. Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate must be installed first – oh really!
  2. Active Directory must be configured – I used this guide:
  3. SQL Server 2012 is next – remember to tick of Management tools so SQL Server Management studio is available
  4. I then followed George Khalil guide and prepared the system with the described service account
  5. And then installed SharePoint 2013 preview

You can also try and have a look at the Sharepoint 2013 preview via the Office 365 preview site:
