2012 Server Certification Testing help RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to do a certification for Windows 2012 on a server board we manufacture.  I haven't done HCT testing since the Windows NT days (17 years ago???) and have no idea where to start. 

    So I thought i would just download the tests, install them on a machine, install 2012 Server on a "client", install the client software from the HCT machine and try to run the tests.  Everything worked OK until I clicked "start".  Then it stopped with red "X" at Win8 LoadGen Server Stress - Run First - Set Machine Policies and a message "System -PNP (disable and enable) with IO Before and After (Certification).

    So I dug back into the instructions and more links and then read something where I need an SUT, an MCT and 8 SCs along with a domain controller and the "Server" the HCTs are running from? 

    Help.  I would take a step-by-step 2000 page manual over all these links.
