I have downloaded the Windows 8 developer preview ISO and I'm trying to get it running on VirtualBox 4.1 in Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. Short story: it doesn't work.
I see a message "Loading files..." followed by a title screen that says "Windows Developer Preview." Then I get an error with some funny boxes and in between it some text that appears to say '... restart your computer...' followed by some error codes.
My machine is a dual-core Intel Centrino running at 1.6GHz with 2GB of RAM. I have assigned the VM 1GB of system RAM, 32MB of VRAM and enabled PAE/NX and 2D acceleration.
What am I doing wrong?
- My CPU does not support hardware virtualization.
- The download is not corrupt since it boots in the actual computer without issue.
