So I have had this desire to run Windows 8 in VMware  vSphere 5 for a long time now.   Knowing I could run it in Workstation 8; I wanted to also run this on my ESXi 5 host, but could not… So I waiting waited for an update.  I wasn’t going to hack my way to what I wanted.  I did it the right , stable and supported way.

And well, here it is.
