    Hi all,

    Just downloaded win 8 915440 using IE and download manager.

    Created a new VM in Parallels Workstation 6, and booted from the iso.

    I get a 4 paned, blue window and nothing else.

    Do we have to do something special to load win 8?

    FYI, just changed the Parallels settings to use IDE disk and cd and it's going now.

    Same thing here. I tried to install Windows 8 from a DVD drive. Workstation says "SCSI controller is not installed", then boot from DVD drive, but later Windows 8 says " Your PC ran into a problem. We're collecting some problem info....." and it loops around. I tried to re-install change BIOS settings, but no success. I tried to install tools from the installation folder, but still the same. Hoping somebody from the Parallel Technical Stall will address this kind of problem here.

    My Machine is Z87x-UD5H, i7 3.5GB, 32 GB RAM (8GB 4x) 2GB Radeon HD 7870, 500 GB Seagate (2x) 250GB Seagate and 1000GB Seagate, 3x DVD Drive, Window 7 Ultimate 64Bit.

    Re: Install Windows 8

    I figured out that Parallel Workstation has no support for Windows 8, the option to create Windows 8 Virtual PC is just a decoration. Sorry for this but we are fooled. LOL

    The only thing I can think of is that your downloaded file is corrupt. Have you tried redownloading it ?

    Hi,
    Can you give exact error, also regarding "SCSI controller is not installed", did you try changing BIOS setting to use IDE ? Some time supported scsi and raid driver are not present in image.

    Hi,
    Compared to an upgrade installation, a clean install is almost always the better way to install Windows 8. A clean install won't bring with it any problems.
