    Running MS Virtual Server 2005 in VMWare

      Hi,

       

       

      has anyone ever tried to run another VM System within a VMWare Server installation? My installation is as follows:

       

       

      Linux Host running VMWare Server 1.0.4

       

       

       

        -> VM Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 Standard running MS Virtual Server 2005

       

       

          -> Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 running Contoso Demo 

       

       

      Unfortunately the MS Virtual Server is running so slow, that even showing the BIOS Option in a virtual machine takes about 10min while the CPU (2xXeon 1.6GHz) takes 50% of the performance over the whole time. Booting a Windows system takes over 1 hour to complete while CPU is at 100% all the time.  Is it impossible to run MS Virtual Server within VMWare or do I miss something?

       

       

      Thanks in advance,
