Default [Q] Windows 8 on vmware

Has anyone been able install Windows 8 on vmware esxi 5? When I create a new virtual machine I set the settings for a Windows 7 PC. But when I boot from the dvd or iso image it disconnects and shuts down the virtual machine after it loads the installation files. (right after it boots from the dvd)
