    Opened a ticket with MS and AMD. MS responded through our partner channel with a simple statement of "we're working on it". AMD has yet to respond but it definitely isn't their issue as it's supported on most every other hypervisor. This is silly.
    Also, there's a competing thread at AMD's forums. I recommend bombarding them as well.

    Good afternoon to be 100% clear the nested issue only occurs when trying to run nested on-top of Workstation 15 Pro. In my research some say bare metal ESXI host nested works . I would love Microsoft to fix this issue and enable this support. Yes it is not a Microsoft product but at the end of the day we are looking to run it inside Windows 10. For most of us we don't have the funds to buy multiple host to run a lab. Thank you Microsoft for your consideration. My specs AMD Ryzen 1700 GEN 1. Asrock a350 64 GB DDR-4 Crucial. Os Windows 1809 latest patches all drivers installed for all IO. Core Issue ESXI host crashes when trying to run a vm, inside Workstation 15 ver 4 plus.

    Thank you.

    So, just plunked the cash down for a 2990wx and found out most of the drivers don't support server 2019, there's no nested virtualization, and MS still hasn't fixed the kernel scheduler bugs. This isn't a new platform anymore and it has been around for around two years. AMD's SVM is older than that. There is absolutely no excuse for this unless MS is intentionally driving business to Intel.

    @MS: Pls. provide a statement on this. Nested virtualization support on EPYC (at least) is a must!
