Did you know that it is possible to install Windows8 (Consumer Preview at this time) into a VHD (and boot into this VHD). I knew about this feature before, but now it was finally time to give it a try.
The installation of Windows8 went smooth as described here (but now with Windows8 instead of Windows7). This is such a cool feature - no need to partition your harddisk or something, all is inside a single file!
VHDs are something I wanted to take a deeper look for quite some time - for different purposes, as a kind of "general container format" or so. I hope I will find time to blog my thoughts about this topic.
