I will show you on how to deploy NanoServers using VHDX and enable nested virtualisation on Windows Server 2016. Nested virtualisation is a new feature that is only available on Windows Server 2016 and its not available in earlier versions of Windows Server.

Nested virtualisation is enabled on per VM level. It is not a global setting.

[What do you need]

[Creation Steps]

  1. Create the Nano Server VM (E.g. VM name is Nano1)
  2. Enable nested virtualisation using this power shell command (Set-VMProcessor -VMName Nano1 -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true)
  3. Power on your VM
