Windows Developer preview doesn't support VPC. You?ll need to install the OS to a clean machine. Hence you need to find out an system that have either only install windows 7 or the Windows Server with Hyper-V technology. Then it will be work to fix your installation problem. This dual-boot installation has been work to fix your complexity problem.

You don't need VPC, just try to execute the below mentioned command onto the command prompt of the windows 8. In that you need to go to the Control Panel\Programs. Then just find out the Turn Windows Feature on/off option and select Hyper-V to fix your complicated problem.
