Windows Server 2012 on VMWare

Today we tried to run Windows Server 2012 RC on VMWare. Our version of OS on VM was set to Microsoft Windows Server 8.

After first reboot after installation we got black screen with little circles going around forever:


Never ending cycling

Never ending cycling


We couldn’t make it work. But we found solution. Just change OS Version of VM to Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit).

For Windows 8 it is required to change OS Version to Windows 7. Thanks to Róbert Švec.

We hope VMWare will fix this soon 🙂
