Installing Windows 8 on XenServer

Having trouble installing the recently released developer preview on XenServer ?

Thomas Koetzing has the fix on his blog

Create a VM with a Windows 7 template and copy the virtual machine UUID from the general tab in XenCenter or use xe vm-list in the CLI. Next you need to run the command xe vm-param-set uuid=<VMUUID> platform:viridian=false

The installation can the proceed as normal.
