    64-bit Windows 10


    Hello,

    I would go with the 32-bit ISO in a virtual machine for the best chance of not having any issues. You might consider using VirtualBox as in the tutorial below. It worked great in it for me.

    Thanks Shawn, I should have known that. I did attempt it in VMware (it didn't work) and subsequently dl'd & installed the 64 bit ISO in V-Box using your tutorial. I haven't played with it yet, life is getting in the way, lol.

    My already underwhelming graphics on my cheap lappy will probably be even more so running the 64 bit...I'm gonna d/l the 32 bit and see if that gives me better perfomance.

    One other noob question, s'il vous plait...having never used v-box, is there a setting/way to get my native resolution (1366x768, I'm using 1024x768) in the Win 8 Dev build? It doesn't seem to be an option...

    I'm afraid that I haven't played with VirtualBox enough to know either for the screen resolution.
