We are running esxi 5.0 update 1.

I need to install some 2012 server vm on it.

Now I found a link to vmware that saying it is fully supported for that version of esxi 5.0 u1.

But after running the install for 2012 and it reboots to finish, it just sits at the spinning circle.

Has anyone installed it on this version of esxi and has done it successfully? I'm looking for that solution.

I have tried some solution on the net, but so far nothing is working.

So if someone has a working procedure, please let me know.
