Install it on a USB and then flush it down the toilet.

If you really want to give it a try, I suppose VirtualBox is a cleaner and quicker solution, but bear in mind that Guest Additions don't work well with Windows 8, and that it won't properly resize the screen and adjust to the size of the host window resolution. Also, I had big performance issues, but that's probably because I screwed something up.

Agree whole heartedly. Why would you install Windows 8? VB would be best since it can all be undone by hitting the delete button once...
