News from Windows Build conference had been amazing: Touch everywhere, Metro styles and Network integration (Windows Live -cloud-) and some others…
but can’t work, saying: vcpu-0:NOT_IMPLEMENTED and crashed. After some googling find out VMWare does not support (at the moment) windows 8, maybe Workstation 8.
So, I tried Virtual Box and by just using default values failed. Adjusted Processor values and worked. Below some screenshots displaying the used configuration and windows 8 running.
Be aware you may need hardware virtualization in your CPU. I have Intel i5 with hardware virtualization support on my pc.
Hope this brief guide will help you.

Downloaded the latest version of VirtualBox and worked
Configuration that worked
Then have to change from PIX3 chipset (default) to ICH9
