Windows 8 dev preview running on a small PC!

This video shows Windows 8 running on a Intel AtomTM N450/D510 1.6 GHz fanless with 1GB RAM with a display 19'' with resistive touch screen single touch, USB controlled.


I installed the Windows Developer Preview English, 32-bit (x86) version from http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/apps/br229516
I created a USB bootable device using Windows7-USB-DVD-tool, available at http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/html/pbPage.Help_Win7_usbdvd_dwnTool
The installation was really easy and fast: I turned on the machine and I launched the installation directly from the USB drive. After 20 minutes it was ready.
Here some pictures during installation.


I had a problem with power supply so I had also this nice blue screen. Anyway the system that is only a developer preview was able to solve the problem after reboot. :-P
