On September 30th, Microsoft announced the next version of its operating system, Windows 10. On October 1st Microsoft made the Windows 10 Technical Preview available for download.

First, sign up for the Technical Preview program and download the ISO from http://preview.windows.com.

Launch VMware Fusion 7 or Fusion 7 Pro. From the File menu, select New to open the installation assistant.

Select Install from disk or image and click Continue. In the Create a New Virtual Machine Window, Click Use another disc or disc image…

In the Choose a disc or disc image window, select Downloads, then select the Microsoft ISO file and click Open.
