Install Windows 8 Developer Preview in VMLite 6 Years, 11 Months ago Karma: 0
Hello,

I have downloaded the recently released ISO for the Windows 8 Developer Preview and am trying to run it in a VM using VMLite. Unfortunately, it is not working correctly for me. I have attached the log file and screenshot. I am curious to see if anyone has been able to do this successfully. Thanks.

EDIT: I am using the 32 bit ISO found at the link below. My host OS is Windows 7 Professional 64 bit and I am running VMLite Workstation 3.2.6.

Thanks for the report. We are downloding windows 8 build right now. Will post the results.

We are also finishing up VMLite version 4, and it v4 works well for Windows 8, we will release a beta of VMLite v4 very soon.

yes, we got same error too on v3.2.6.

The latest version v4 works well, though. We will try to release a new build soon.

I installed it on VMLite Workstation and a Win7/64 host.
Install crashed with the virtual HD controler set as SATA/AHCI. It worked with an SCSI virtual controller.
Looks like Guest Additions are not compatible ?

Surprise: when defining the VM type Win8 and Win8/64 are in the menu !

Looking fwd to VMLite 4 beta !

You can download the guest additions here:

www.vmlite.com/vmlite/VMLiteGuestAdditions.iso

this is binary that works inside Windows 8 32-bit guest

Enable 3D, and allocate 128MB video memory

make sure to click Direct3D Support, then select No to install wddm driver. Basic driver doesn't work.

I tested full screen, seamless, shared folders, etc. all seem to work.

A new update will be available soon for the guest additions
