    1)you can burn the setup in the DVD and boot from it
    2)you can transfer the set up to usb drive
    3)or you can download the tools from the link
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/download

    They all are freely available.

    And system requirements are:->

    • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
    • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
    • Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)

    System Requirements

    The Windows 8 Developer Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows Vista and Windows 7:
    >1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
    >1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
    >16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
    >DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
    >Taking advantage of touch input requires a screen that supports multi-touch
    >To run Metro style Apps, you need a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 or greater

    How to install the Windows 8 Developer Preview from an ISO image


    The Windows 8 Developer Preview is delivered as an .iso image that must be converted into installation media stored on a DVD or a USB flash drive. On Windows 7, the easiest way to convert this file is to use ( Windows Disc Image Burner.)


    On Windows XP and Windows Vista, a third-party program is required to convert an .iso file into installable mediaand DVD burning software often includes this capability.


    Note: The .iso file that contains the developer tools requires a large capacity DVD called a DVD-9, as well as a DVD burner that can handle dual-layer (DL) DVDs. Most modern burners should be able to handle this format .

    Good luck!!
