How to install Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview on Oracle VM Virtual Box

Windows 8 is the upcoming operating system from Microsoft’s Windows family. Though it may take some time for the operating system to go for sell in markets, Microsoft has released the consumer preview version of the operating system. In this tutorial, I explain how you can try this upcoming operating system on your machine without removing your current operating system.

All you need is Oracle VM Virtual Box installed on your system (Of course your PC hardware must support hardware virtualization for this to work). You can download virtual box from here.
