Windows I'm swamped with real-world work at the moment, so you'll have to settle for this quickie: the consumer preview for Windows 8 has been released. Go get it and report in what you find!

Anyone else try it under KVM?

All I get is a picture of a fish blowing bubbles, and then it kicks back out to the BIOS screen.

The developer preview of win8 worked, so maybe they broke something.

Oh well, it loads under plain QEMU.

This is unexpected, I can't get past the windows activation screen. Good job microsoft.

Edit: I've searched microsoft's win8 website and the web for information, but I still can't find out how to activate the preview. Does anyone else know how to get the preview working?

If you use the ISO rather than the web setup package, you can get the key from the ISO download page at

The key is: DNJXJ-7XBW8-2378T-X22TX-BKG7J
