I am currently running Windows 8 in Fusion off Mountain Lion, but Unity is disabled.

I cannot find a way to just download an iso and start a fresh vm. Do I have to order the disk?

How did you get Windows 8 in the first place? – mcandre Nov 4 '12 at 4:33
Just ran the updater on my 7 machine. – mgaughan Nov 5 '12 at 16:35
When you purchased Windows you were sent an email with a link so you can download it. – Ramhound Nov 16 '12 at 15:21
That's the updater. I realize that. I've already posted the solution. – mgaughan Nov 16 '12 at 17:47

Setup a Windows 7 VM and run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant from there.

That's what I did. Had a seven vm and ran the updater. Now unity is greyed out and fullscreen doesnt fill the width. – mgaughan Nov 7 '12 at 14:55
@mgaughan Unity, the video game development software? – mcandre Nov 8 '12 at 5:10
Unity is a view mode in Fusion where applications run aside the native the Mac dock, etc. – mgaughan Nov 8 '12 at 15:08

Found this guy that showed a method of creating an iso.

Suppose I should have started at Microsoft.
