Reading Time: 2 minutes How you probably know is possible run Hyper-V role (or Hyper-V Server) in a VM using latest version of VMware virtualization products (vSphere and Workstation) because they also can “emulate” the hardware instructions (AMD-V or Intel-VT) needed of hypervisors like Microsoft Hyper-V (but also, for example, Citix XenServer). More complicated if you was to run Hyper-V in a nested VM inside Hyper-V (or some other virtualization platform that lacks of this “emulation” feature).
