vCenter 5.1 installed onto Server 2012

Fix from here: via Using the 2012 box you're trying to install vCenter 5.1 on, go t o HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\vpxd Open the DependOnService key and r emove ProtectedStorage from the list Ensure the vCenter Server and WebMgmt services are using domain logons Reboot Start the vCenter Server service - will take a bit, but will work Re-run JUST the vCenter install for it to complete successfully I spent several head-scratching hours trying to figure this out, now working like a charm.
