Windows Server 2012 on VMware Workstation

If you install Windows Server 2012 in VMware Workstation 8 you may encounter a flikkering screen and the Virtual Machine might become unresponsive.

For me the solution was to enable “Accelerate 3D Graphics”. This option is found in the Virtual Machine Settings screen

After the option was set i could start the machine and start trying out the new Windows Server 2012 Server Manager Dashboard
