NetBackup support for Windows 2012 server

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Windows 2012 Server has been out (GA) almost 8 months to the day - when is NetBackup going to support it?  I have many plans for utilizing Server 2012 and this is really putting a strain on these.  I thought normally Symantec releases support within 3-6 months of a new OS.  I am getting no answers from everyone at Symantec I have talked to about this - so please, if anyone knows something definite, let me know...

We KNOW for a fact that NBU 7.5.0.6 and 7.6 will support W2012.
