In VirtualBox you can change the display mode to "Scale Mode" and I really forget what it says but it says "press _____ to switch back to normal mode" and when I press it, nothing happens. I guess I'm barred so I uninstalled my CP. Oh well, I can have it back up tonight I guess.

I downloaded the 64-bit Windows 8 CP and can't get it to install in VirtualBox. Sadness...
Try going to BIOS configurations and then check if CPU virtualization is set to ON.
Sometimes the VT function has just been disabled, thus preventing installing 64-bit OS in a virtual machine. However if it's the circumstance that the CPU doesn't support virtualization at all, then you'll probably not be able to install it.

Yeah. It's now the spot where you click to log out. I can't seem to add a regular Windows profile pic, though, which bugs me.
You can change profile pics by logging into your Live account via the web interface, and clicking the edit link next to your current profile pic. Not sure how fast it'd update, but I know mine was fetched from the web upon install.

I'm just gonna run a quote from the other forum I'm on.
The current max amount of Tiles on the metro start screen is 7 according to the registry as well as having the sad reminder of that on my 28 inch monitor that has a resolution of 1920 by 1200. After digging into the registry a little to see what I could do with it with the machine I've customized and put VI start menu on this is what I came up with. With this tweak you should be able to get more tiles on the screen at once as the default.
