Hi, I have created a Server 2016 VM inside of VM Workstation and installed the Hyper V Role using setup in this guide https://protechgurus.com/install-hyper-v-on-vmware-workstation/
I have also opened Hyper V and created a VM.
But I get the following error when I attempt to start the VM.
The Server is a HPDL360e G8 and the following BIOS settings have all been enabled.
But I am still getting the hypervisor is not running message.
The two important BIOS settings, which need to be enabled are the top two from the sceenshot you've provided.
If both of them are enabled, then please attach the "Hyper-V" VM's current vmware.log file to a reply post.
All of the features are on in the BIOS and I can't see a reason for why it is doing it.
Here is a screenshot of the lastest events from the Hyper V Host Servers vm.log.
It looks like the vcpu was starting up certain features but I can't see any errors at the time.
So I don't understand why the guest VM is failing to start with the hypervisor message.
Hi, I have attached the log file but I can't still cant see anything that may be preventing the guest VM from starting on the host.
I suppose the other way to test it would be to install Hyper V on the physical host itself, then create a Virtual Server with the Hyper V role on it, and see if I can add and run a VM within that.
At least that would prove that my hardware can support nested virtualisation I can get the VM to start. And the only thing it could be after that is VMWare Workstation related.
