    Yes, after the expiration date, you can no longer use your computer with W8 DP, and you will lose everything that is not backupped, so in the final week of march if you havent done so, do it.

    Do you mean "it"? Is your computer's dvd-drive compatible with your disc? and is the disc empty and is there enough space for the file, as you know that the developer preview with dev-tools needs a double-layer disc.

    it needs double layer disc? i didnt know that. i dont have any... i have plain writable dvd with 4,38 GB capacity. And by 'it', I meant like nothing happens, like i didn't even try to burn

    EDIT: and the data to burn only takes 180 MB

    i think that you'll have to download this version (it's x64 but without the developer tools)
    or mount a .iso file trough bios
