After upgrading to Windows 8 Preview I noticed that HAXM is not longer work. When trying to install itextra_intel_haxm-windows_r02 I receive error like "This computer does not support Intel Virtualization Technology (VT-x). HAXM cannot be installed." Not a critical issue as I still can use emulator without HAXM, just asking.
