    I am really loving it so far. It does take some getting used to with the new MetroUI and no Start button, but like Windows 7, it is just a matter of time to find the new places for things.

    Definitely a nice solid beta so far. It loaded ALL the drivers for a Lenovo T410 laptop from the fresh install - all were built in drivers, I will update them to official manufacturers drivers, but everything works flawlessly out of the box!

    A few quirks that I don't like or would like added, but I will submit those to Microsoft. I'd like to have the option to include the clock on the Start screen and a few others. Love, LOVE the live tiles. Love them on my phone, and I love them on this, too. I want to try this on a tablet so bad, but I'm waiting for "official" Windows 8 tablets.

    Anyone find any glaring bugs yet?

    please, can someone confirm that the installer works similar to W7, meaning that you can choose on which partition you want to install W8 ?

    iŽm asking because the installprocedure looked a little bit weird to me when i started it...

    EDIT: Problem solved !
    I found the required info on:

    Hello hackerman,

    I installed W8 as a dual boot with W7 yesterday and, after creating the W8 partition, that partition was available in the 'where do you want to install window' window.
