    Well for starters, you should be downloading it from Windows Metro Style Apps Developer Downloads as it is free.

    Secondly, sounds like a bug you are having with the Start Screen.

    What is your screen resolution on the virtual machine? It needs to be at least 1024x768.

    Try using this https://www.eightforums.com/tablet-to...html#post36997 tip.

    And also double check that Windows 8 is on a separate partition.

    I also ran into a similar problem that Control Panel would not always display. I was messing around with testing different video drivers, so I needed Device Manager open to attempt driver upgrades. Sometimes, when I rebooted, and clicked the Control Panel tile, while that screen would display, when I then scrolled down to the More Options, and the desktop redisplayed, the Control Panel applet that came up was blank. Sometime is would work OK when I logged off and back on, other times, it took a cold restart. Guess this is one of those things they will work on for the Beta.

    I also had that problem. I used SFC / scannow to solve.
