Workstation 10: Windows 8.1 not recognized and beeps from pc speaker after starting VM?!

Earlier today I upgraded Workstation 9.0.0 to v10, one of the reasons is that Windows 8.1 is supposedly supported as guest.



The Windows 8.1 ISO's I got from MSDN ( and are NOT recognized plus 8.1 is not even mentioned in the list with operating systems.



And after manually selecting 8(.0) x64, the VM started sending beeps through the speaker in my computer case after I hit the power-up button.. I disabled the beeping by adding mks.noBeep = "TRUE" to the VMX file.

What's up with that?
