I'm not clear on whether any or which  combination of MS Virtual Server/Virtual PC/ 64-bit host systems e.g. XP64, Windows 2003 64 bit, 2008 64-bit allow for the running of virtual 64-bit sessions. E.G. running Windows 2008 64 bit server as a virtualized session on a Windows 64-bit host/physical server or virtualized XP 64 on XP64.

Hyper-V supports 64bit guest Operating systems.  Virtual Server and Virtual PC do not.

Just to be clear you are saying that if I have Windows 2008 Hyper-V I can run one or more instances of virtual sessions on it that are 64-bit OS based e.g. I can run the Windows XP, 2003 or 2008 64-bit editions virtualized?  If you could point me to a link that would verify this I would appreciate it as the reason I asked here was I did a bit of research including going to the hyper-V page but could not find anything specific to validate the possibility.  So either I missed or was looking in the wrong place.

I just know you can... I've not read it - I've as an MVP, I've spoken with developers on the Hyper-V team.  And I saw a developer demonstrate it on his laptop, running 5 OSs.  I'll try to dig something up... but at this instant, all I can say is yes, Hyper-V supports 64 bit OSs.

Here ya go... a simple google search of "Hyper-V supported Guest Operating Systems"

Produces this document:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2008/en/us/hyperv-supported-guest-os.aspx

Which clearly states what I said.
