    My question too. From what I've read it looks like the only way to use this Win8 release is to upgrade (erase) an OS already running.

    When I did a fresh install on my tablet it asked about partition.

    Windows 7 x64 SP1 Home Premium/Win 8.1 in VBox


    Well it installed in VirtualBox very easily. I have to say I'm not impressed with the new start menu. The ribbon in windows explorer sort of takes over too much the window space for my liking.

    You can at least minimise the ribbon.

    There is. It's in the start menu - Settings - at the bottom under "Power".
