Nested Hyper-V - Mixing OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • From what I have read so far it seems that nested Hyper-V is not possible unless the level 1 host and guest are the same OS (Server 2016 or Windows 10). Is it possible to run Windows 10 as host with Server 2016 Core as guest VM and Hyper-V?

  • Hi,

    Yes it can be done in Windows 10 as host. I am using Windows 10 as host and Windows 2016 as guest OS and HyperV host.

    You may check here for the requirement.

  • I am pretty sure it has no problem, I am using for my lab every day, it may some limitation like as cannot using dynamic Ram and need to enable MAC address spoofing.... But it does work. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/hyper-v-on-windows/user-guide/nested-virtualization
