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


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

Speed bump

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.
