Booting Windows Server 2012 under VMware Workstation 8

Still not having much luck with getting Windows Server 2012 to boot under VMware Workstation 8. The failure during booting it in a Virtual Machine is below.

A little annoying to say the least. I’ll eventually work it out I am sure, have tried a number of the suggested workarounds and nothing has worked so far. I guess I will get more motivated eventually.
