    Hyper-V requires hardware virtualization which is not available in a
    virtual machine. You can't run Hyper-V in a VM.

    Enabling Hyper-V on a VMware 64bit win2k8 guest image

    Hi

    I have installed 64bit Win2k8 Enterprise Edition (virtualised using VMWARE
    server 2.0 - running off vista 64bit). When i try to add the hyper-v role,
    it prompts me to enable DEP or make sure that CPU is a 64bit processor.

    I want to install to review and test HYPER-V before going ahead and install
    on a phyical system.

    Can anyone give me some pointers on how to install Hyper-v in a virtualised
    guest system.

    Thanks

    As Paul says, you simply can't do what you are trying to do. Hyper-V uses
    the built in hardware virtualization capabilities of the latest Intel and
    AMD processors, and that requires that it have physical control of the
    processors. And it can't have that running from a virtualized Windows Server
    guest.
