Windows 2012 R2 Black Screen

Windows 2012 R2 Black Screen

Been scratching my head over an issue with attempting to install Windows 2012 R2.

Using VMware ESXi 5.5, we've deployed a VM using VM version 10. It gets to the point of booting the WinPE client, entering of bootmgr.exe, followed by Loading files... The process then appears to do some sort of disk discovery before immediately going to a black screen and hanging.

Downgrading the VM to VM version 8, this issue does not occur and WIndows 2012 R2 installs as expected. This issue is very reminiscent of (except I'm using VMware) to which I've seen no posted resolution.

Any help on where to start troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.
