Activating Hyper-V inside the Virtual Machine.

To create Virtual Machine under the installed Virtual Machine using Hyper-V you have to make a note of following steps:



Step 1: Turn of the Virtual Machine.

Step 2: 
Run Powershell with Admin Right and enter below command:
Set-VMProcessor -VMName "<SERVERNAME>" -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true
In my case it was below:
Set-VMProcessor -VMName “Windows Server 2016” -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true
Like Below:

Step 3:
Ensure you have assigned minimum 4GB of RAM/Memory to the Virtual Machine. 

Step 4:
Network spoofing should be enabled while you are going to create the VM inside the VM so ensure its checked and enabled. 

If you are not going to follow this you might find below error: 

Error: Validation Result, Hyper-V Cannot be installed: The processor does not have required virtualization capabilities. 

So the above are the steps to make it capable enough. 

My First Virtual Machine : Installing Windows 2016 Sever on Windows 10 Pro Hyper-V, Step by Step Guide.

Hello, Technical Support Enthusiast, if you would like to learn another awesome stuff then here I am with "Installing Windows Server 2016" on Windows 10 through windows very own Virtual Machine Handler Hyper-V.

So first the boring stuff to tell you to have to install Hyper-V on the Windows 10 Pro.

The requirements, machine which is able to run Windows 10 Pro smoothly which drives it like butter like my computer (~_*) and Windows 10 Pro installed on it.

Once you have the above-detailed configurations please open "Turn Windows Feature On and Off" box like in below image:

Now you will get a kind of box which will look like a box in below image:

Now just like in above box select all the box and put a check mark next to them which has Hyper-V.

Now you have Hyper-V installed!

Now we will create our very own and very first Virtual Machine on Windows 10 Pro system.

Note: To do this I have downloaded the evaluation copy of Windows Server 2016 Datacenter edition on my computer which is free for 90 days.

Now open Hyper-V Quick Create like in below image:



:) You will be able to see below amazingly beautiful box once you are going to click on above box: 

Great, now things will be very interesting from here. So you already have two options from windows one is Windows 10 Developer Environment and another one is Ubuntu, Windows 10 Licence you already have so you can install a copy of that on the VM or you can install open source free Ubuntu.

As I am not in the mood of learning Linux today so I will bypass ubuntu and I already have the full-fledged version of Windows 10 Pro which is loading up things so I will excuse that too.

Please don't ask me how to download the Evaluation version of Windows 10 that will be a lot of effort for now. Just google it and do it by yourself.

So at this point, I am ready with my Windows 2016 Server ISO and I am going to select that instead of the above two options, so I am going to select "Local Installation Source" and going to follow the below options:

I believe you can understand the above instruction easily. Now click on Create Virtual Machine, and here you go:



Now click on connect and enjoy your Windows Server 2016 on your Windows 10 Machine.
This is a very useful method for MCSE enthusiasts who are learning it.

There are still a lot of things to discover in edit settings and then of course in a Virtual Machine world.

Hope you will enjoy your journey through it.

I have left some of the roadblocks on your ways to find a way through it, if you still find any difficulties please write in the comments box below I will get back to you, maybe sometimes in delay but I will surely going to get back to you on this.

All the best.
