I ran into this issue as soon as I configured the en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440.iso in VMware Player.

Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you.

How do I resolve this issue?

VMware Player goes into a restart loop. I know VMware Workstation 8 will be required.

Which version of VMware Player is supported with Windows 8?

I installed VMware Player Version 5.0.0 build-812388 and (.iso) Windows 8 is working fine. Earlier I had VMware Player 3.0.0 build.

According to VMware, the current player supports Windows 8 already.

VMware Player is the easiest way to run multiple operating systems at the same time on your PC. With its user-friendly interface, VMware Player makes it effortless for anyone to try out Windows 8, Windows 7, Chrome OS, the latest Linux releases, or create isolated virtual machines to safely test new software.

I'd make sure your ISO isn't corrupt.
