I had been installed SQL Server 2012 on Windows 8 Custumer Preview and after installation the service of SQL Server does not starts.
On EventViewer I get this message:
Cannot use file 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA\master.mdf' because it was originally formatted with sector size 4096 and is now on a volume with sector size 3072. Move the file to a volume with a sector size that is the same as or smaller than the original sector size.

My NTFS sistem is running ok:

This is a failure of the hardware/firmware. SQL is correctly reporting the condition.

A Microsoft fechou como impossível reproduzir, não forneceu nenhum comentário.
Com isto, não poderei sugerir a nenhum cliente a migração para SQL 2012. Uma pena (mais uma vez).

Microsoft closed my other bug report.... They determined that it was a fault of Dell's BIOS and a Dell BIOS update will be needed for SQL Server to install on my laptop under Win 8

I get the same error from SQL Server 2008 R1 SP1 on the same Windows 8 client
