I’ve got a MBP running Lion and Windows 7 installed via Bootcamp.

I’m now wanting to also have an installation of Windows 8 to have a play with developing on. I’d rather install it via a virtual drive than actually partioning my main drive again as it’s only a 90 day trial and isn’t upgradable – seriously, wtf?

So, I have the windows 8 iso, can I install this using VMware Fusion?

I’ve used VMWare to run my windows partition within OSX but can I install a new OS that way and then install software on that OS – like Visual Studio?

Any tips appreciated :)
