    Cannot choose Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012 after upgrading to ESXi 5.1

    20thCB Novice

      I have upgraded my hosts from ESXi 5.0 to ESXi 5.1 so I could have Win 8 and Win Server 2012 as guest OSes. However these are not listed in the guest OS list when I attempt to create a new VM.

      I can only see the same list as when the server was ESXi 5.0. The latest OSes I can see are Win 7 and Win Server 2008 R2.


      I am using VCenter Server 5.1. I can't figure out what I need to do to enable support for Win 8/2012. I will log a ticket if no-one can help here.
