Re: Welcolm to Windows 8;

Burning image to disc and see if that will work, never played with VM's before, must be a learning curve! LOL

Thanks fv, I am downloading it now. I have no advice for installing as VM as I have never tried it either. I installed Win8 on my Netbook as the main system.

Try VM Box on your main rig, it uninstalls like a regular program, so no harm!

Not worried about harm. I have a test rig and images of all my OS drives. Just prefer to wait until a beta or RC is available.

I really don't blame you, the problem I'm having is happening to lots of people I think it's the .iso file not liking VM ?
