    Hi, welcome to forums...

    May I know which processor you're using?

    If you're with Intel, try:

    Enter the BIOS setting and enable the XD bit (execution disable bit) of your Intel CPU. See if that works

    Yes, perfectly safe, they will reset if something goes wrong. However i doubt that will do anything.

    Are you trying to install a 64-bit OS? I'm guessing you have a 32-bit processor (Can we get the model?) and you're trying to install 64-bit Windows 8.

    I'm pretty sure the Windows in the VM needs to be 64-bit as well, if the main OS is 64-bit.

Greetings, I currently have Windows 8 Release Preview, it is my main OS. I have many programs,files,settings,etc. My question is when the final version of Windows 8 comes out will I be able to upgrade to that version from my current version (Windows 8 Release Preview). What I mean by upgrade...
I kind-of like Windows 8, but do you?
My sound used to work in the consumer preview fine but since I upgraded to the Release Preview I need the volume max and headphones in to hear anything. Any help appreciated. If more info is needed just ask.
For those who have already tried it, please feel free to comment in this thread the changes you have found compared to Consumer Preview. Thank you.
5510We have info that Windows 8 Release Candidate will be called "Release Preview" and that will be launched sometime in late May or early June. But we must say that all these are just rumors. 5509 Source: winunleaked
