TIP: How to install a HP branded Windows OS as a virtual server

Hi All,

I recently pumped into this issue with my HP ProLiant DL360 Gen8 server using a HP ROK license for Windows 2012 server. Problem is that, if  a VMWare hypervisor is running on top of the proliant and you want to install the windows OS for your virtual machines/server you will get an error of "Failed Bios Lock". The usefull link below should help anyone with this problem.
