Windows 8 in a VM

I finally got my VM NAT working thanks to the comments in an installation blog post. The key was changing the Adapter Type (Network - Advanced) to Intel PRO /1000 MT Desktop. As soon as I restarted the VM, it recognized the adapter.

Windows 8 on my Dell Duo has COMPLETELY REVOLUTIONIZED my tablet. With Windows 7, the Duo was better in "netbook mode" but now I rarely flip to the keyboard. The split on-screen keyboard is a huge improvement and the pinch-zoom on IE 10 is FANTASTIC.
