  1. It will overwrite your current install!
  2. It is like most Windows.. It delete or put aside your Current Windows and install the new one or the on in your disk/ISO file... I Assume you downloaded it, i will not recommend you install it as it's a beta and/or cause system instability which is a "May" as in it might...
  3. It is a developers preview.
  4. Run it in a VM. Least hassle way to do it.
  5. Plus 1^
  6. Windows 8 Developer Preview can be installed on virtualization platforms including VMware Workstation and Oracle VirtualBox.The host's CPU must support hardware virtualization, and the virtualization usage - enabled in VM, in order for the installation to succeed.

  7. VirtualBox is free. I would try that, otherwise yes, keep nothing is a wipe.
