yeah that could work, however I would still like to start Windows 8 at bootup, which would require a .VDMK because EasyBCD allows booting from VMDK.
Booting sometimes directly and sometimes from VM and Win8 will have to change/reinstall drivers every time.
Not a very good setup. It's like using the same disk on 2 pc's. (Unless the Win8 install was a To Go Portable version).
