Windows 8 Release Preview - Error code 0x80070570

When installing Windows 8 Release Preview using a VMWare Player 4, if this encountered:

Windows 8 Release Preview - Error code 0x80070570
The fix is fairly simple:
  • If the ISO is being used to to boot directly from the hard drive, change its location on the hard drive
Or
  • Mount the ISO into a virtual drive (I used Daemon tools), and that virtual drive as the boot drive for the VM. 
That should ideally take care of the problem. If it doesn't, leave a comment below.
