Windows Server 8 Beta Active Directory install in Workstation 2012 Tech Preview

Some days ago I was installing Server 8 aka 2012 in 2012 Tech Preview. I used the default settings where I choise for x64 as version.

I have used these VMs with the from the TechPreview.

As soon as I try to install and configure the Active Director Domain Services, the VM needs to reboot. Once it has rebooted, it goes in a blank screen, and there is nothing I can do. Workstation thinks the VM is running, but there is no response via the GUI in the VM, no response to ping traffic to the VM or RDP.

Solution:
Downgrade from Workstation TP2012 hardware to Workstation 8 hardware and to select R2 as the guest OS Knipogende emoticon
