'Your Computer Ran into a Problem and Need to Restart'; Windows 8 Installation Fails on VMWare Workstation 7 with This Error!

Everyone is so much curious to try Microsoft Windows 8 Consumer Preview. But I did  not feel much excitement as I have already tested Windows 8 when it was released as Developer Preview last September. I, too, earlier tried to install Windows 8 as a guest on VMware Workstation 7. But it failed. Windows 8 does not support old virtualization software. You may get the below error:

"Your Computer Ran into Problem and Need to Restart".

See the screenshot:
