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

Some days ago I was installing 8 aka in 201 Tech Preview. I used the default settings where I choise for 8 x64 as version.

I have used these VMs with the VMware from the TechPreview.

As soon as I try to install and configure the Active Director Domain Services, the needs to reboot. Once it has rebooted, it goes in a blank screen, and there is nothing I can do. 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 TP201 hardware to Workstation 8 hardware and to select R2 as the guest OS Knipogende emoticon
