After my failed installation of Windows 8 on Virtual PC, I quickly turned to Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 R2, which worked like a charm. Installation took only a few minutes.

I woke up with a smile this morning, the Windows 8 Developer Preview was released during last night. Once downloaded and configured on Virtual PC, I’m eagerly waiting for the virtual machine to boot. Sadly the developer preview doesn’t work well with Virtual PC (which I should have figured).
