@SalihB Unfortunetely, you won't be able to use SSAS 2008 MD Cubes. See here for the full details.

The relevant tidbit is this:

  • Servers must be running SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU4 or later versions of Analysis Services for the Power BI Desktop SSAS MD connector to work properly
    • Only Enterprise and Business Intelligence editions of SQL Server are supported for MD connectivity

@Seth_C_Bauer Thank you so much for the information ! 

What about using the Power BI Web app instead of the desktop version ?

@SalihB The Service currently inherits the connection via the Desktop file. There is no way to directly link to an MD SSAS instance. And if there was, I'm farely certian the requirements would be the same as the requirement is necessary for the DAX queries to work against the MD SSAS instance.
