Hi,
I'm on plan to create VM's and also install win 2008 on top, but I wonder how this workstation will help me to facilitate my installation. Can I also use VMware workstation to install VMware server and its virtual machine ?

Yes, you can use VMware Workstation.

But it might be easier to use Hyper-V roll in Windows 2008 R2.
All of life is about relationships, and EE has made a viirtual community a real community. It lifts everyone's boat

Hello,
I plan to install this in our production client environment, so my choice will be Type 1 hypervisors, thanks I probably will go with Hyper-V seems it free and the customer also do not want to spent more on their IT budget.
