    I put the CP in VM Player. There you add the iso as a new dvd drive to get it installed correctly. The latest VM Player 4.02 not 4.01 released in December is the one to go with. The previous has a few bugs corrected in the newer release.

    Installed in VBox. WDDM video is playing up. May have to remove it. Shame it worked OK in the W8CP.

    Been away for days, suddenly found Windows 8 Preview Release available for download.
    Unfortunately I will still be going out of town for couple more days.

    I guess this W8P will only be out for few months before Windows 8 is released.

    MrNeeds I installed the release preview to the computer in the snip below which has a Q6600 processor and the install went flawlessly however I did not do an upgrade install but a clean/custom install formatting the drive first.
