Hyper-V CPU requirements for a laptop

Hi Experts,

I have a customer who uses a very old piece of software that only runs on Win 98. She want's to get a new laptop and run a Hyper-V VM of Win 98 so she can run this software. What are the CPU requirements for Hyper-V to run?

I use VMware Workstation on Windows 10 (and on Windows 8.1 before that). I have a Windows 98 virtual machine and it works just great inside VMware Workstation. In fact my Windows 98 VM goes back many years and continues to run in new VMware Workstation installations. Workstation is very robust, modestly priced and better / more flexible than VMware Player (although Player will work).
