Bluescreen while installing Windows Server 2012 RC on VM : HAL_initialization failed

While trying to install the Windows Server 2012 RC on my VM-player, I immediatly got this screen: HAL_initialization failed

hal_initizaliation failed

hal_initizaliation failed

In short, it means that your virtualisation device is unable to install the server. Installing the latest version of VM-player fixed it for me.
