    Default Virtual box installation problem

    Hi,

    I would like to say how I did.

    First I created a partion and formated it from Disk Maintanence , I got a warning that this made the disks dynamic and only one partition could boot. That may have been the problem the first time because when I Started the Win 8 install from the DVD I burned it just wrote over the operating system. Several hours later after a restore I tried creating a Virtual Hard Disk but again Win 8 just installed over the OS. The instructions I found on this forum all thought it would give me a choice. The only choices I got had to do with saving or not saving existing settings there was no custom option or partition to install to option. This is release preview I downloaded from Microsoft. Target is a Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit.

    Any suggestion? Thank you.

    You get the choice if you boot to the DVD, then choose Custom Install. If you choose Upgrade, you will not be given a choice of where to install Win 8 RP.
