The answer is YES, you can install Configuration Manager 2012 beta 2 on the newly released Windows 8 platform. After a few quick tests I have verified that:
- The client is installed and Software Center is available
- Inventory is working
- Application deployment is working
- Settings Management is working
- Software Updates also works. Not that I could test with any Windows 8 updates, I tested with some custom updates from SCUP 2011.
- Remote Tools works.
- OSD works.
It’s awesome, who would ever have thought that X-Mas would come in September this year You can download your copy of Windows 8 here
