microsoft windows 2008 r2 hypervisor and vmware esxi 4

I got this query for you gurus. I installed windows vm 2008 r2 on esx 3.5 and tried to add the hyper-v included within the OS.

An error stated that my processors do not support it. In fact my processors do support it. If i install esxi or esx4 will I get the same error?

There's no product out there currently that will virtualize VT (or AMD-V) so while the host can use it, the VMs don't see the vCPU as having it.

I hear that the current kvm offering virtualizes AMD-V, but not VT-x. Regardless, no current VMware product virtualizes either one.

So, you wanna install hyper-v under ESX? I doubt that's possible.
