    How are you trying to install the Windows Developer Preview? Perhaps you have an issue with the download and need to download the .iso again.  You can do that from the following site: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516

    If you burned your .iso to a disk then perhaps you got a bad burn and need to try that again.

    Please provide more details.

    Thanks,

    Make sure your computer match or exceed the system requirements for Windows Developer Preview.

    1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor

    1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)

    16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

    DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch To run Metro style Apps, you need a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 or greater
