Test the look and feel of windows8

For those wanting to test Windows8 without running the whole setup process, here it is bundled as a VMware OVF.

As curious as you, I wanted to give a try on Windows 8 and its brand new look and feel. I decided to bundle my test in a VMware Appliance so that you would be able to import it in your VMware environment quickly.

The files are available in the file repository.

File listing

http://bkraft.fr/files/VMware%20Appliances/windows8%20consumer%20preview
|-- [ 163]  windows8 consumer preview.mf
|-- [5.0K]  windows8 consumer preview.ovf
`-- [2.8G]  windows8_consumer_preview-disk1.vmdk

Import the machine using ovftool:

ovftool http://bkraft.fr/files/VMware%20Appliances/windows8%20consumer%20preview/windows8%20consumer%20preview.ovf vi://username:password@esxiserver.yourdomain.tld
