    ok big problem installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview in virutal box


    ok big problem, i installed the virutal box just like in your tutorial
    I downloaded the windows 8 iso from the site you gave
    I picked the 32bit one because that is what i have
    I also used the wizard one that microsoft gives you so you can burn it to a dvd
    So I followed all the directions and burned it just fine


    So i use the disk and get an error msg which i attached

    Ok so now i download just the iso and try that and same error msg

    I tried disabling the audio all together but i am getting same msg
    What am i doing wrong?

    Sorry, I can't help with VBox.

    Have you tried VMWare? I have x64 version running fine in VMWare.
