  • Azure or CloudShare.

    MS didn't make a downloadable VM

  • Is there any other option, where i can get a preconfigured VM rather than non MS

  • No Option left

    You have to download all required installation files for SharePoint 2013 and build your own VM.

    SharePoint 2013, SQL 2008 R2 SP1 and Windows 2008 R2 are downloadable with 6 months trial period.

    For any long time or short time project development,These installation will be fair enough.

  • SharePoint needs to be installed on server OS (like windows server 2008, 2012 etc.).

    Since you are using Windows 8.1 you can use HyperV virtual machine. But please make sure you meet the hardware requirements.. you need in between 8-16GB memeory dedicated to the virtual machine.
