After trying to install the Technical Preview, I keep getting an error saying that Required Media is missing to install drivers.. after a quick search on the Internet, I was able to find an article that helped.

The quick and easy answer is that the default configuration is WRONG!

In order for the install to work, make the following adjustment.

Step 1: Shut Down the previous installation.

Step 2: Go to Settings and Change the Hard Disk 1 Setting Location from: SATA 0:1 to IDE 0:0

Step 4: Save settings and Start the virtual machine again.

Thats it!
