I need to install a vm with server 2012 r2 on esxi standard 5.0
If I select custom when trying to install the vm, I see the option for version 8 which I select but I dont see the server 2012 selection for the OS. The latest on there is server 2008 R2 but the client does have a server 2012 template. So not sure how they got that installed when I dont see anything for server 2012 for the OS selection..
Is there anyway to setup a vm running server 2012r2?

The options that appear, within the selection list are just template options, it does not matter which option you select, or use.

Windows 2008 R2 will be fine.

What is important, is you are own at least 5.0 U2 for support.
