I have the 32-bit ISO of the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and I burned it to a DVD (using Nero Express on Windows XP) to install in VirtualBox on my other computer (running Fedora 15).
The problem is, when I try to boot from the ISO in VirtualBox on my Linux computer it gives and error and won't boot.
Interestingly, when I open the ISO in Fedora's Archive Manager, it shows it as occupying 2.5GB, but only containing a blank text file called
README.TXT; however, when I open it using 7zip on Windows it shows it as having quite a lot of files.
Why is the data differing between platforms? And if the ISO isn't corrupted, why isn't it booting?
EDIT: BTW, the error I get when I try to boot in VirtualBox is the same as this one
EDIT #2: Turns out Windows 8 requires NX; once I enabled it it booted just fine.
