VMM 2012 + Hyper-V 2012 R2

Can I install SCVMM 2012 R2, and create virtual machines without having hyper-v 2012 R2 installed.

Is this best practice?

We want to implement SCVMM, and create virtual machines, in our test / staging environment.  But we do not want to install Hyper-V.

Thanks

You will need to have a Hypervisor!

I'm afraid this will not work.
