Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 Operating System does not boot or install on ESXi or ESX (2006859)

Symptoms

  • Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 fails to boot or install on any version of ESXi or ESX
  • Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 is not working
  • You cannot use Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 in ESXi or ESX

Windows 2012 on esxi 5.0.0 U1 ever finish installation

Resolution

Note: Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 will not be supported on ESXi/ESX 4.0 or 4.1.
Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 is fully supported for ESXi 5.1 and ESXi 5.0 U1 and ESXi 5.0 U2.

Note: For Windows Server 2012, you must install the patch ESXi500-201209001(Patch 04) on ESXi 5.0 U1. For more information, see   VMware ESXi 5.0, Patch Release ESXi500-201209001 (2032584).

Steps

Consider this guidance, which is based on testing Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 up to build 8224:
  • Windows 8 Developer Preview / Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate does not boot on ESXi 5.0. To resolve this issue, you must install patch ESXi500-201112001 (Patch 02):
    1. Download and install ESXi500-201112001 (Patch 02). For more information, see VMware ESXi 5.0, Patch Release ESXi500-201112001 (2007680).
    2. Create a new virtual machine configured for either Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2.
    3. Enable 3D graphics or do not install VMware’s WDDM video driver.
    4. Install Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 from Media.
    5. Install VMware Tools.Note: VMware does not recommend installing VMware’s WDDM video driver. Use the default VESA driver.
  • If you experience a black screen after installing VMware’s WDDM video driver in a virtual machine with Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012, enable 3D graphics or reinstall the operating system and VMware Tools without VMware’s WDDM video driver.
  • VMware does not currently recommend using USB xHCI with Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012. To work around this issue, remove the USB xHCI controller or use the USB EHCI+UHCI controller.Note: Any changes to the virtual hardware must be preceded by a full shutdown on the command line (shutdown /s /t 0 /full). Otherwise, the Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 hibernate-shutdown may not fully detect hardware changes and you may experience a blue diagnostic screen or triple fault at boot.
  • The vmxnet3 virtual NIC does not work in a Windows 8 / Windows Server 2012 virtual machine with ESXi 5.0. To work around this issue, use e1000e or e1000 NICs.
