Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I know it's not supported, and won't be officially supported, but has anyone had success getting a Windows Server 2012 VM running on a vSphere 4.1 box?

Thanks for the help.

Nope. Time to upgrade ESX. –  HopelessN00b Aug 23 '12 at 20:51

You won’t be able to install this at all. You will need to be running ESXI5 at the very minimum. But I would wait for a few weeks as EXI 5.1 has just been released. The hardware version profiles just wont support it at all, and VMware will not write a new hardware profile for it.
