    Looks like there is a serious incompatibility with win8 and vmware fusion 3. As I was looking into this problem, it appears that vmware has released version 4 of fusion - hopefully that will fix the problem.

    For what I can see, both parallels and virtualbox work well with windows 8 so if you're on fusion 3 and not willing to upgrade, you can use virtual box to play with win8

    huh? I'm saying vmware fusion 3 is not compatible with win8. I and others on the net are getting a hal_installation_failed booting up the win8 install.

    FWIW, fusion 4 is working well with win8
