I have read these forums and it is clear Win 7 works (and mods such as Buffy, Bat, Bull, etc..) However nowhere have I seen a clear post that someone has installed and is playing successfully on Win 8. I would assume that the install instructions at the top of the page would be the same for Win 8 or Win 7 (understanding you must have CD's to make this method work). Can anyone confirm Win 8 does work? After more research, it appears Win 8 in Hyper V mode will allow you to install your existing XP OS. So the question I guess becomes which performs better?
