    Is it possible to run the Windows 8 developer preview on Bootcamp? I thought that was only possible with Windows 7?

    At least Parallels works fine, although W8 is not officially supported. I ran Windows 7 beta in Boot Camp before the official support came.

    Unfortunately, I'm a cheap loser who hasn't bothered to buy Parallels yet. XD

    Do you know of anyone trying it with Bootcamp?

    would it be possible to install virtual box and make a bootable flash drive of the windows 8 and run it from that instead of my HD. i just want to play with it for a little bit and see whats it about. i just did a clean restore and didn't want to put a lot of crap on the drive yet.
