I apologize in advance if this is a dumb question. I am in the process of evaluating both VMWare and Hyper-V solutions and I have deployed ESXi on my only hardware that I have for the testing. Do I need to blow it out in order to install Hyper-V? Or can I load a 2008 virtual machine and install the hyper-v role on it? I tried this and the O/S is telling me that hardware virtualization is not supported by the machine. Is there a way to enable it?
Performance is not a metric I am evaluating in this test, just want to look at usability of the two solutions.
Thanks in advance.
