    I tried downloading the version that lets you run either Linux or Windows.

    Fucking thing sucks all I get is the BSOD.

    I defer to your superior geek skills to solve this important problem.

    I want to try it out first before I blow out Win 8

    There's a version that lets you run either/or, but it doesn't work

    I'll be doing a new build next year and will use it but I'd sure like to play with it now...ah fuck

    As driven said, make the DVD and boot to it, you can try it out that way. You must create the DVD first.
