If any help is desired i can do so when i have time, comment below if so.
I've setup TrinityCore & Eluna Merged with TrinityCore for alot of different people on different computers and servers. so i'm well accustomed with installation and setup errors.

I think i got an error?
If Cmake succeeds but it says “Boost_DIR-NOTFOUND” it doesn't mean anything, you can still build the server without any errors. - NOTE that when you build it will say that you have an unknown compiler build, this doesn't really mean anything other than what it says. it will not cause any issues

Possible Errors
Boost_INCLUDE_DIR is not found
you need to build the boost path like i did above in the guide, it’s possible you are using a different version that may cause an issue.

When i start up world i get an error but not when i startup auth.
This is because you have the wrong DLL files, Make sure you have the files for either 32 or 64 bits you decided to compile.

I get a error message with a code when i try to startup auth or world.
This is the same issue as above.

Changes -
Git Bash Setup (New code for easier pull thanks to *FoeReaper)
Git Bash Setup removed 2 lines(changes can be seen in the google document)
Cmake Version changed due to conflicts with Latest VS installation
Added possible solutions for errors and other path finding issues.
