Windows 8 / 2012 on ESXi 4.0 / 4.1 hosts

OK, so others have documented on how to enable using Windows 8 and Server 2012 with an ESXi 4.0 / 4.1 host.  I am not going to recreate the procedure, but here are links to some:

What I was curious about was where this bios.440.rom file came from and is it safe.  From the first reference from the VMware communities it came from a vmware employee.  Did some more searching and found these two sites that detailed building / modifying BIOS-es

While it was detailed, and looked like it used some files that were coming from questionable sources, the original toolkit was sound

So I concluded to accept the file and not research further.
