Plesae note that VT and DEP are enabled in the BIOS and Server 2008 Enterprise x64 running as a virtual machine inside VMware Workstation.

This will not be possible as I have already tried it once using VMware Workstation v6.5 and Windows Server 2008 64-Bit Enterprise Edition.

I got the error "Hyper-V cannot be enabled on this Server"

Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V can only be installed on base installations of Windows Server 2008 64-Bit Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter Editions.

This cannot be a VM as the Hyper-V role would require direct communication with the base hadrware.
