i was full of passion to install windows server 8 x64 to test it and to discover new features and capabilites that insert in this version, so that i installed a beta version from microsoft’s download website. prepared a new virtual machine in VMware Workstation 8.0,,,, and here i’m..i was thinking everything will work smothly but oh oh.. i faced a problem… the error message below appear:

Windows Cannott read the <ProductKey> setting from the unattend answer file.

I said hey come on i didn’t enter any key or unattend answer file, so what’s happend? I search around this problem and after a couple of minutes i find a solution and i tested it it’s work..the solution is: 1. Turn off the Virtual Machine 2. Go to Virtual Machine Setting 3. Remove Floppy Disk from sittings Menue (or you can diseable power on setting) 4. restart the Virtual Machine

Congratulations… enjoy the Windows Server 8
