I have decided to remove my Win 8 DP from Virtual Box to a separate partition I will be creating on my HD. I have found that the networking problems, both with my Win 8 DP (detailed here) and my Win 7 installation (my system is often getting confused by the VM network causing problems) is finally getting me frustrated enough to make the change. Does anyone have any suggestions on making this change? Is there any way of taking the customizations I have already made directly into the dual boot senario or is a complete reinstall the better choice (I suspect this is the better choice since I am fairly early on in the Win 8 DP experiment) Any suggestions on the best alternative for the installation, and any pitfalls others have discovered. I will most likely be working on this tomorrow (off work). Thanks guys and gals.
