Windows 8 installation problems:- Solutions and Troubleshooting steps

Last week I was trying to install the Windows 8 Developers Preview using the VMware and i found many issues while doing it. One thing i came to know, if u keep your computer updated to the latest software, you will be able to update to Windows 8.

HAL_INITIALIZATION__FAILED seems to be the most common error which even i got . Whatever it is whether 32 bit or 64 bit maximum people face this issue and the following screen.

I was not sure how should i handle these errors , reason being this OS is completely new still i managed to do somethings which enabled me to install it successfully.


  • I thought of re-downloading the setup of Windows 8 but i read some where that it wont help.
  • Then the next thing i had to do was to update to VMware 8.0 and use it.
  • I did the same , and guess what it actually worked for me
  • But later it did ask for some serial keys which was actually unbelievable because a developers preview cannot have a serial key.
  • Later I tried using the VHM for Windows 7 and it did worked for me.

I must say, Windows 8 is going to change the world.
