I don't know about CheomeOS in VMPlayer but you can get a ready built virtual disk for VirtualBox here. Chromium OS builds by Hexxeh, but I wouldn't bother its just a Chrome browser pretending to be an OS.

Hi,

If you are interested in trying out Windows 8, then you need go no further than this tutorial, specifically for setting up Windows 8 in VMWare Player:

VMware Player - Install Windows 8

If you decide to use VirtualBox, then you can use this:

VirtualBox - Install Windows 8

You can have as many virtual machines as you have storage for the virtual disks. So no need to remove win 8 for ChromeOS. We will be happy to answer any of your questions although questions about win 8 would be better put in our sister forum Windows 8 Forums
