    Installed it over Win XP on WMware and it doesn't work! Says - Can't find boot device. Fu$k can't restore my previous OS, nor files on that virtual machine!

    Don't try to install it over your current OS on virtual machine if you have anything valuable there!

    Yes, definitely test it on a virtual box OR create a new partition on your computer! I tested it my first try and couldn't get it to work, either. I had to get a copy of Windows 7, install that, create a partition, and try a few times with Windows 8.

    However, I do have it fully working, and I have to say I LOVE it so far. It's extremely fluid, the layout is smooth and appealing, and they didn't really do anything over the top, nor have any Vista-type issues.

    Finally on my laptop!

    So did you guys have problems installing this on a PC running Windows 7?
    Or was the issues only with Mac users? I'm about to download this now but now your issues have me wondering..

    There are issues on a PC from Windows 7. Make a new partition to be safe.
