Windows 8 Developer Edition

Has anyone got this working on an ESXi 5.0 host?

If so could you please post your settings?

Regards,

Paul

His process doesn't seem to be working for me... did you get this to work, if so any options used he didn't mention?

Take a look at UPDATE3, you actually CAN run Win8 on ESXi 5 with some help from Xenserver running on ESXi 5 first Smiley Happy - http://www.virtuallyghetto.com/2011/09/how-to-run-windows-8-on-vsphere-5.html

Hi !

I've been able to run windows 8 Developer Preview both on a vSphere 4.1 and 5.
This method is a bit special, but it works.

As I said before, it near the same than describe above, but using only vmware products (not xenserver).


You can read the article on my blog: http://www.sqaopen.net/blog/en/?p=9

If you have a better way, I need to know !
