I would suggest you try to run Windows 8 CP in a VM environment. It runs fine on VirtualBox, Hyper-V and VMWare. In a VM, the guest VM does not see the underlying hardware.

As the name suggests it is still not yet the final version, so I would suggest also a VM environment to deploy it for test purposes
