How does the install work? Dual boot?
Are you still able to work on your Wins7, or XP OS?
If you use the wizard install it will allow you to repartition an existing drive to install for dual boot or upgrade your existing os.
If you install from ISO, you can create a virtual hard drive to install to, install from USB or install to USB and boot from USB.
There are a ton of ways to check it out and MS has made it absolutely easy.
I use Vmware workstation 8.0 to test out, but i also upgraded my desktop at home. I didn't really feel at home with windows 8 until i upgraded an existing OS and saw how my historical windows habits were not reflected in windows 8 and now it makes more sense.
