Is there a detail and current guide for a newbie to install Magento 2 in my test environment?
I am good at following detail instructions. I have spent over 3 days downloading and reading html and you tube video to answer above question. My environment is laptop with Windows 10, WAMP install and Composer install. I know they are installs for I get the green light in Wamp. With composer, I use the help and list command as directed to confirm it runs.
Method 1: Using composer
I read "composer create-project --repository-url=https://repo.magento.com/ magento/project-community-edition ".
I am using standard Wamp directory settings (ie C:wamp).
What do I exactly use/type in the "composer create-project --repository-url=https://repo.magento.com/ magento ..." command and where do I execute this command. In a tutorial, there was a mention of clicking and seeing the composer selection. When I install composer, I was not given a shell extension. New to composer and magento.
Method 2: I tried by downloaded
Magento-CE-2.1.1_sample_data-2016-08-29-06-53-55.tar.bz2. Unzip and place into c:wamp/www.
Looking at 1) in localhost, I see parent and vendor folder. Inside the vendor folder, I do not see auto, setup, or index (ie what to run).
Looking at 2) ie Magento with sample data. I navigated with local host and got 2 messages.
Error Messages I see: "
Warning: require(C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor/magento/module-theme/registration.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor\composer\autoload_real .php on line 60"
Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required 'C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor/magento/module-theme/registration.php' (include_path='C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor/magento/zendframework1/library;C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor/phpunit/php-file-iterator;C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor/phpunit/phpunit;C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor/symfony/yaml;.;C:\php\pear') in C:\wamp\www\MagentoD\vendor\composer\autoload_real .php on line 60"
In my research on how to install Magento 2, there was a mention of setup wizard and unluckily, I have not seen it in the downloaded (method 2 dwnld). Appreciate any help in getting this thing to run and ideally with sample data. Currently tired and hoping for help in your forum. tx

Did not know I have a 5 minute time limit to do edit. Thus, this insertion on my train of thought. Comment limit thus addition done here. thanks
I have never worked with Magento and Composer and thus I will make rookie mistakes. Assistance appreciated to avoided first timer mistakes. With my problem installing Magento 2, I decided to troubleshoot if my installation satisfy the mandatory and list my installation checklist.
Magento-CE-2.0.9-2016-08-10-03-31-28.tar.bz2 Magento-CE-2.1.1_sample_data-2016-08-29-06-53-55.tar.bx2 wampserver3.0.4_x86_apache2.4.18_mysql5.7.11_php5.6.19-7.0.4 composer ver 4.5
Magento key Above will then be the environment of what I am using.
mod_rewrite modulein Apache (how do I check if mod_rewrite is enabled? If it is disabled, how to I enable it on Apache?). In Apache, I look at apache module and I see mod_rewrite has a green arrow check mark.
Composer -help" or list to make sure composer is install. It is install when I did/check in cmd with help option. In an article, it is mention to make sure composer is install globally (Will look into that - how to determine if global and how to make it global?)
C:\wamp\bin\php\php5.6.19\php.ini, I see the following are commented out below ( ie install).
C:\wamp\bin\php\php7.0.4\php.ini, I did not check for it says not to edit that file in comment when I open/access.
C:\wamp\bin\apache\apache 2.4.18\php.ini, I cannot access (I cannot open like I did in C).
Enable list of extension in php.ini (C - commented out):
php_pdo_mysql php_mbstring php_xmlrpc php_curl php_xsl php_soap php_intl php_openssl
Window setup wizard install for Magento - Will try to find html article and try.
Have a feeling I am not using Composer properly to install Magento, and there is something interesting in a stack forum. Will investigate.
Magento-CE-2.0.9-2016-08-10-03-31-28, I unzip and put into www. To document my adventure more fully.
Magento-CE-2.1.1_sample_data-2016-08-29-06-53-55.tar, I unzip and put into www with different name. To document my adventure more fully.
To document my adventure or keep trying with different platform.(easy dev or AMP or who knows to get this install done. I am under the weather and it is does not help researching how to).
When documenting, write for a newbie and life will be easy for all. I hope my encounter will help newbies and how to writers. I have not played with a PHP package over the years - CMS or Event app and might involve curl, pear or soap. It such a long time and Mag would have been easy to install if life is a bed of roses.
