    if you don't want to upgrade and it is only for basic testing then just set your virtual machine os to windows 2008 r2 instead of windows server 8 or windows 2012

    this is totally unsupported but should get you up and running

    Also to make people aware to correct hardware is compatible as I have found you upgrade a HP DL380 G5 you get lovely pink halt screen. My G7 servers are fine so for the future my G5 server will stay on 5.0.1 which supports Windows Server 2012 and the VMware tools seem to be ok as well.

    From what I seem to remember no G5 range is supported as of version 5.1.

    Glennda you are correct. I had assumed if version 5.0 worked that 5.1 would fine as it would be minor upgrade so no need to check but lesson has been learnt

    That is the thing with VMware numbering - its not a minor release as such there is some big changes with it!
