I am attempting to set up a hyper v cluster using server 2012.  What I am attempting to accomplish using my hyper v servers clustered for fail over.  

I have 1 server 2012 machine as my DC
I have 2 server 2012 machines to use for my cluster.
I have a network set up for the data and a second for the second network for the heartbeat.
The cluster manager validated our set up with the exception of storage.  

Is it possible with server 2012 to set up a hyper v cluster for fail over using internal hard drives.  By this I mean NOT using a SAN, JBOD, or ISCSI.  Just internal disk.

When looking on the internet I seem to read yes and no.

Yes, you can have a Hyper V Cluster but not using local Hard disks, but by using a shared folder. If you are going to use that for production, I would refrain from doing it, as you know how that works. For testing, yes you can.
