So the scenario is that I have an instance of Windows Server 2012 running on VMware Workstation 8 on my laptop (Windows 8).
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
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.
