Hello,

I am using nested  Hyper V on Vmware Workstation 8.

I have followed the steps from this page http://www.veeam.com/blog/nesting-hyper-v-with-vmware-workstation-8-and-esxi-5.html

but I have the error bellow everytime I try to start a virtual machine, I don't understand because i have enough disk space ansd 1 gb of ram on my vm.

An error occurred while attempting to start the selected virtual machine(s).

'TFS' could not initialize.

Failed to create partition: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service. 

Open in new window

the error message, seems to suggest Intel-VT is not being passed to the VM, a common issue with Nested Hypervisors.

not all computers and processors are successful at running Nested Hyper-V.

if you have followed the article exactly, and you cannot start the VM, the issues is likely the processor.

do you have Intel-VT enabled in the Host BIOS?
