Is there any way to VmWare, Virtual PC, Virtual Server and HyperV simultaneously. I don't mind if I have to mix and match different versions to do this.  I also don't mind a dual-boot solution if necessary that I could choose at startup e.g. running a version of Windows 2008 that has HyperV installed or one that doesn't have HyperV installed.

    Accepted Solution

    I suppose multi boot is the only option, because hyper-v, virtual server and virtual pc can not coexist on the same OS

    Assisted Solution

    from my experience i have had vmware server (or workstation) And Virtual Server 2005 installed on the same OS... works fine as long as you don't run both at the same time (i have come into blue screen issues some times if i run VMs on both)

    and as from_exp suggested, for running hyper-v you do need to go for dual boot.
