    Using VMware Free Player, at the appropriate point in the process do I just point it to the Win 10 iso file I downloaded? Or does that file have to be unzipped (or whatever the correct term is)? Thanks.

    I posted the below on another thread but thought i would post here too as you have created a new thread for it...

    I have ran it in VirtualBox, everything runs fine but no additions therefore it's a little laggy and rubbish screen resolution but all in all it works ok.

    I actually got the additions to install running it in compatibility mode as Windows XP SP3 but it had no affect on the VM (Didn't break it but it did't sort the resolution etc...)

    I have managed to install a few apps and run chrome in it.
    Is the lack of a working Guest Additions why Shared Folders doesn't work in Oracle VB? I can define shared folders but can't access then from the VM.

    Edit: Asked this in the Oracle VB forum as well.

    Just point it to that ISO, it won't recognize the OS so just press next,

    Then you select windows, and windows 8 for 32bit (or the windows 8 x64 if you're installing the 64 bit) then next,

    Give it a name and a place to live, I chose the default place to store it, then next,

    Then size your virtual partition, it will default to 60 but you can shrink that, and dot the store as a single file, then next,

    Then click the customize hardware,

    And since I already talked to you about how much RAM, just slide it to 2GB and the close,

    Then you will be back to this window,

    Just click play virtual machine and the install will continue, just like a https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1...n-install.html

    You'll get a yellow bar across the bottom to install VMware tools, just wait till the install is finished before doing that.

    I'm sure you can figure out the rest though.

    You can also do the following:

    VMware Player - Install Windows 8

    4. Select (dot) the I will install the operating system later. option, and click/tap on Next. (see screenshot below)

    11. Click/tap on New CD/DVD in the left pane, select (dot) Use ISO image file, then click/tap on Browse. Navigate to and select the Windows 8 ISO from step 1 above, and click/tap on Open. Click/tap on Close. (see screenshot below)

    There was no issues with installing Vmware Player version 6.0.1 build-1379776. The display is just fine, with or without the Vmware tools:

    Just to confirm I have installed 10 3 times in Workstaion 10.0.3 build-1895310. A 32 bit version which I gave 3GB and the Enterprise Version with Windows to Go 64 bit and the Add features to Windows 10 64 Bit Tech Preview. I also added Windows media ceter to the Tech Preview but have not tested any of the media center yet. So far so good. I think most of the issues are bad downloads when the installation fails completely.
