    HYPER-V with second level VM running on vmware workstation

    Hi there

    just thought I'd do a Bonkers experiment - works and isn't too slow (but use SSD !!!).

    Host W10 X-64 PRO with HYPER-V

    VM1 (ist level VM - 2nd level machine) Linux CENTOS 7 with latest kernel (4.7)

    VM2 --installed VMware workstation on the Linux machine (VM1) --created XP VM --works fine !!!!

    I know it's Bonkers but I was curious to see if the HYPERVISOR (HYPER-V) on the Host would propagate its properties to a second level machine (VM1) preventing VMWARE workstation from running.

    Seems that the XP VM which is using VM1 as its Host doesn't know anything about HYPER-V nor does VM1.

    It's entertaining to test various nested scenarios :)

    I've had Windows XP Mode running on Microsoft Virtual PC installed on Windows 7 Ultimate vm running on a nested Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V vm running on Windows 10 Enterprise host.
