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

Some days ago I was installing Windows 8 aka in Tech Preview. I used the default settings where I choise for 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 is running, but there is no response via the GUI in the VM, no response to ping traffic to the VM or RDP.

Downgrade from TP201 hardware to Workstation 8 hardware and to select R2 as the guest OS Knipogende emoticon
