Windows 7: installing windows 8 in vmware

installing windows 8 in vmware

just downloaded the leaked windows 8 (downloaded the newer better version) and im trying to install in vmware just to have a look at it, i know it has hardly any driver support and is buggy ect.

So when i try and install i get the 0x000000D5 error and it asked me to restart.

My vmware supports up to windows 7 64bit and apparently the windows 8 installer uses the same architecture, so has anyone been successful installing this via vmware or any other virtual app?

Doesn't install on VMware. Use VBox instead.

Might want to post here for Win 8.
