I can't install it on VMWare Player. It actually manages to crash VMWare while the installation is loading.
EDIT: That's was the x64 version. I tried x86 now, and the good news is that VMWare doesn't crash. The bad news is that the installer still doesn't crash (it gives a curious kind of BSOD with a smily face on it and the error "HAL_INITIALIZATION_FAILED".
