Windows Server2012 on Workstation 8.0.4 build-744019 – Issue Resolved

For Testing purpose when I install the release of  latest Server OS by Microsoft (Windows Server 2012) on my VMWare Workstation 8.0.4, I faced abnormal behave of OS specially after installing VMWare tools. I have experience that screen of VM is just goes black and not booting up.  After trying some setting works I have found that Server 2012 VM is requires Acceleration 3D Graphics Check On in VM setting.  However, this feature was the optional one on the old VMs of   Windows XP, Vista, 7 to run applications that required DirectX 9 accelerated graphics.  But in this scenario we must have to turn it on to play with this great server release.

Walk-through of the solution……………go to VM settings>


After selecting Display Check the Box given below>

VM is now working Fine;)
