  • Please explain the issue a little more in detail. Are you getting the tiled Start Screen, have you been able to update it, can you reach the Control Panel ? If so, try to create a local account by going to the User Account and then to Add or Remove user Accounts.

  • Please read the System Requirements given at :http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516.aspx, see if your PC complies with them. If it does, try to reinstall WDP, fill in the details when asked, during the installation process. Since you haven't installed any personal data or applications on your WDP yet, the reinstallation should only take minutes.

    I am copying some details from the link I gave you above. 'The Windows 8 Developer Preview is delivered as an .iso image that must be converted into installation media stored on a DVD or a USB flash drive. On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use Windows Disc Image Burner. On Windows XP and Windows Vista, a third-party program is required to convert an .iso file into installable media—and DVD burning software often includes this capability.Note: The .iso file that contains the developer tools requires a large capacity DVD called a DVD-9, as well as a DVD burner that can handle dual-layer (DL) DVDs. Most modern burners should be able to handle this format.'

    It shall be useful to have your machine connected to the net during the WDP installation, to sign in through your Live Id, and after it, to get all the necessary updates. Please take care to do some home work before the installation because being a Preview, it's likely to cause issues that may require further troubleshooting, even after the successful install.
