So the scenario is that I have an instance of Windows Server 2012 (Windows Server 8 Beta) running on VMware Workstation 8 on my laptop.
Adding Hyper V role to the server
The other error that has been recorded:
Shutdown the Windows Server 2012
Browse to your VM location and open the vmx file and append at the end the following two lines
hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = "FALSE"
mce.enable = "TRUE"
Save and power up your VM
Let’s try that again
Now you should be able to go on and configure your Hyper- V role on the server.
