[feature-request] Nested Virtualization: VT-in-VT
|Reported by:||Technologov||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Because more and more virtualization software requires VT (Intel VMX or AMD-V) to run, it makes sense to virtualize it somehow. (at least if host CPU supports hardware VT)
It will allow the following software to run in guests: -Xen (full virtualization mode) -KVM -Hyper-V -Windows Virtual PC -- this is basically a requirement for those who wanna run Windows 7 "XP mode". i.e. It allows for more complete user experience on Win7 guests.
Others can take advantage of it too: -VirtualBox itself :) -VMware Workstation -VMware ESX
-Technologov (yes, I will take advantage of it too :-), yay! )
