Install ESXi 6.5 or 6.7 on Hyper-v Windows SRV 2016 VM

Hello,

I am trying to install ESXi 6.5 and later on Hyper-V Host. I have installed ESXi 6.0, old version and it works fine after doing:

1. Enable nested virtualization on VM

2. Using Legacy Net Adapter

3. adding net tulip vib to ESXi image iso

When trying to update ESXi to 6.5 or installing a fresh one, it fails, because no net adapter found.

Did anybody installed ESXi 6.5 and later on Hyper-V VM? Any suggestion?

There is no Hyper-V network driver in later versions. No, there is no workaround.
