Install Windows 10 Technical Preview In VMware Player

If you are curious about testing out the new Windows 10 you can install Windows 10 Technical Preview in VMware Player 6.0.3.  This was a very easy install you just need to configure VMware.  First I used the X86 version of the Windows 10 Technical Preview.  Second when configuring VMware I selected Windows 8 and the guest operating system and gave it 1 GB of ram so it would perform better.  Other than that I limited the hard drive size to 30 GB as I am running out of space on my desktop.  After that I installed the VMware Tools which helps a lot.

I did notice one Unknown Device in the Device Manager and I could not find out what that is or find a driver for it.  If anyone does please post it on the comments.  It was easy to install Windows 10 Technical Preview in VMware Player and I imagine just as easy in VMware Workstation.  This is also a great way for Windows XP, Vista, or 7 users to check out Windows 10 as Virtual PC does not support Windows 10 that I can find so far.
