Running Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 from Esxi 5 & VMware Workstation 8

Running Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 from Esxi 5 & VMware Workstation 8

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

Speed bump

The other error that has been recorded:

Fix:

Shutdown the Windows Server 2012

Browse to your VM location and open the vmx file and append at the end the following two lines

 

1
hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = "FALSE"
1
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.
