    Joan, I installed the Win 8 Preview on a VM and it ran great. But I couldn't get the full screen and I had to give up half my RAM. I then installed it on a partition, and it still runs great, now with all my RAM and full-screen. Win 7 includes a partition-maker, and simple, step-by-step instructions are available online, and I got it right on my first try.
