Rolling IT

Tonight Windows 8 was released (LEGALLY) at least the Developer Preview edition was! You are able to get your own copy at http://dev.windows.com/. I have an interest in programming but an even greater interest in learning some of the new administrative tools available and things I can dig into a bit more and learn about Windows 8. I decided I was going to install it as a Virtual Machine. When I mounted the ISO it crashes upon startup, so I knew there had to be a setting somewhere I could tweak and it would work... I was right. With VirtualBox all you need to do is enable IO APIC.

I plan to have a whole guide written on the installation of Windows 8 within the next day.

Update: How To Instructions
