MSSQL 2016 Setup Steps Needed

MSSQL 2016 - Setup  

I have a set of task to setup and need the steps.  I've attached an excel to breakdown the requirements.  
I also have a small 120GB database that grows very slow/small.  How would I best calculate the disk space needed for each drive?

Need disk space best practice for data, log, backups and sys db files (which includes tempdb )

I wouldn't change any default configuration (ad hoc, parallelism, ...) unless there is a good justification for that. SQL Server's default configuration values are based in decades of user feedbacks so it should be the right configuration for 90%-95% of the SQL Server installations.
Also do not work with percentages. For example, 10% for OS can be too much or to few (on a 8GB server only 800MB will be reserved to OS and in a 256GB server, OS will have 25,6GB of memory reserved). Usually a minimum of 4GB to a maximum of 16GB of memory should be reserved for a 64bit Windows Server. I would recommend you to work with 3 set of servers:
XS (from 8GB to 16GB) --> 4GB
S (from 16GB to 64GB) --> 8GB
M (from 64GB to 128GB) --> 12GB
L (more than 128GB) --> 16GB
It's also not a good idea to start with big file sizes as you can't shrink to less than the initial sizes. 1024MB and 512MB it's also a lot and can lead to performance issues because during the file growth the database will be locked. Do not use percentages for file growth but you should deal with this in a single database basis and based on the database needs. You should also take in consideration the VLFs when defining the autogrow value.
Since SQL Server 2016, that Microsoft provides an useful tempdb configuration during the setup. Follow that configuration and you should be fine.
