    The solution shown in the video is nothing else than a very sophisticated (and very expensive!) way to use virtual machines. However, it tells you the one very important, deciding factor: what you want to is not possible, can't be done, in any other way than using a virtual machine.

    With a virtual machine it becomes possible. Here a screenshot from my PC just now; the right (main display) showing my host system, the left (smaller) display is running another Windows 10 installation in full screen mode:
