Hi,
 SharePoint 2013 Installation way:
 1.GUI
 2. PowerShell (  http://www.sharepointusecases.com/index.php/sharepoint-2013-unleashed-powershell-scripts/ )

 Still  not clear of  PowerShell created DBs because-

In above Script, If I replaced below line -
$dbName = $FarmName + "_BusinessDataConnectivityService"
 with below modified line as-
$dbName = "BusinessDataConnectivityService"

 Any suggestion for better installation on SharePoint 2013 small farm installation (1*1*1) topology.
 If PowerShell, where can I get better and reliable script.

Suggestion Appreciated

Hi,
the best Powershell script I know is AutoSPInstaller:
https://autospinstaller.codeplex.com/

It has a configuration file to set all the necessary credentials and namings.

You don't need to modify it so much. If binaries are already installed, script will discover it and skip this step.

If completing the XML seem to be diffucult for you, try https://autospinstallergui.codeplex.com/ It's a GUI for generating the XML as you need.

Of course, Autospinstaller script have well written code. You can use the functions and adapt them to your project.
