I just downloaded the Customer Preview. I found out that you can also install this with Oracle VirtualBox. This does already support Windows 8 32-bits and 64-bits. Installation went smoothly.
By the way: tried to install the Customer Preview (32-bits) on VMWare Player 4 first, but I did not get it to work.
