Running a Hyper V VM within VMware vSphere 5.5


The Issue

I wanted to set up 2 Microsoft Server 2012 Hyper V Hosts within my VMware 5.5 test environment but found that when it came to going through the Add Features > Hyper V component and selecting Hyper V that I received the message below


The Fix

  • Shutdown the VM
  • Go into the VMware Datastore and locate your Hyper V Folder
  • You need to locate the .vmx file and download it to your desktop


  • Open the vm.vmx file in Notepad and you will need to add the following 3 strings to the VM.vmx file
  • hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = “FALSE”
  • mce.enable = “TRUE”
  • vhv.enable = “TRUE”
  • See file screeprint below


  • Power the machine on
  • Open Server Manager
  • Add Roles and Features
  • Select Hyper V


  • You now should be able to install Hyper V
