  • Hi Erik,

    Unfortunately, Microsoft Virtual PC does not currently support Windows Developer Preview.   Steven Sinofsky has a new entry in the Building Windows 8 blog that has some good information about running Windows 8 Developer Preview in a virtual environment :

  • Hi Kim, thanks for the answer.

    It look's like Oracle's VM virtual box seems to work, well it boots the pc without crashing my host.

    Now installing W8 server and then TFS 11 so I can play around with that :-)

    Thanks,

    Erik

    The only problem with VirtualBox is that the video driver doesn't seem to
    install correctly.
