Re:Install Windows 8 Developer Preview in VMLite 6 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0
I downloaded this ISO and tried to install on my PC. there were two exes and when i ran the VMLiteWindowsAdditions.exe it doesn't show any thing on the screen and nothing happened.

After that I ran VMLiteWindowsAdditions-x86.exe and it gave the error in the attached image.

I tried to install both 64 and 32 bit version of windows 8 developer preview and both times it gave me the same error message in the aobve posts.

I'm using a HP dv6-1355dx laptop with windows 7 64 bit home premium OS.

Please help me regarding this problem

Cheers !!!!!!

Is your Windows 8 vm 64-bit?

The guest additions is only for 32-bit Windows 8 guest for now. Also make sure you install it inside the vm, not on the host.

Still getting same message as my post above (and first post). Even created a bootable DVD with same results.

Machine/New VM

VM Name and OS Type
Name: Windows 8
OS: Windows 7
Memory: 512MB
Virtual Hard Disk
Boot Hard Disk
Create new hard disk
Dynamically expanding storage
Virtual Disk Location and Size
Windows 8
80.00GB
VDI

Creates Windows 8
Start
Select WindowsDeveloperPreview-32bit-English.iso

Starts loading then error screen appears.

(Using same settings, a Trial Copy of Windows 7 Pro from MS loads ok)

Next message is for vboot not for vmlite!!!

Don't think that using vboot will work.
Win8 is based on UEFI and needs a signed bootfile. So the Windows 7 boot does not support this.
You can install Win 8 on a vhd but then you will loose all your non windows entries in the bcd file, they are still there but will not show in the win8 bootscreen (my vboot is useless now).
The problem is not only for vboot but also for all linux systems running aside windows8.
Not sure this will ever be resolved but Microsoft said to look at the cat in the tree and wait....wait.....for a solution.

Having tried everything to install on Vista 32 host, I'm going to give up and wait for the next version of VMLite.
