    Maybe I missed it but this build doesn't appear to give you the option to create or select a partition. Unlike either Vista or Win7.

    What settings are you using for Vbox?

    I assumed that since windows 8 is based on windows 7 that the same settings I always use for W7 would work for W8.
    Here's my setup which gives me error code 0xc0000225

    Nice. Got a nice BSOD and reboot in at about 70% installing the Win 8 x64 dev tools ISO on my AMD test machine.

    Guess I'll try it out another way...
