Installing Windows 8 Developer Preview

After hearing the news that Windows 8 developer preview is available I downloaded the iso file from MSDN web site.  I was interested in installing it on a Virtual Machine, it always allow you to switch between your guest machine and host machine quickly.

I already had VMWare workstation installed on my box, my first attempt was to install the iso using workstation however it failed due to error :  “vcpu-0:NOT_IMPLEMENTED”  error. A quick search on web and I was able to find that Vmware workstation will not work.

Lot of forum posts suggested VirtualBox, using that installation was straight forward.  You can follow this article and you should be up and running.
