Nested virtualization for AMD Epyc and Ryzen
Please support nested virtualization on AMD Epyc and Ryzen processors.
@Bruce, another useful scenario to support is VGA Passthrough concurrently with Nested Virtualization for the same VM.
I can't use the win10x emulator without this. Trying to develop for the new platform..

Sigh, I never thought that this feature was not enabled in Windows for Ryzen. Using Windows is a mismatch for my own virtualization requirements. KVM for now.

Please add nested!!

Please add nested virtualization. We need it! :)

Switched from (Steal)Intel to AMD, most of my developer workloads dont work under Windows 10 anymore :p

@Christopher Fikes, I am in the same situation like you. Currently as a workaround I have free VMWare ESXi installed on a separate disk and I am using virtual machines with nested virtualization on it for development purposes. I hope that this feature in HYPER-V is available really soon (not just before Holiday season...)

Will it be added to Server 2019 as well? Or will we have to use "Windows Server 2009 edition" or Windows Server 2022?

This needs to be enabled ASAP. Its making development hard for me, moving to a shiny new high core count CPU only to have a key feature you use in development removed .

Given AMD EPYC Rome's splash on the hardware scene with Microsoft being right there to announce EPYC Rome in Azure on the same day as the AMD announcing the product I think this should happen sooner than later. :)
Nested Virtualization I think its a technology that need to support by AMD also . That is why we can push some letters to European Union like they did with so many things for monopoly market and its a free market , I cant be exclusive rights to Ιntel only .
Hi super news I'm currently waiting for nested Hyper-V support with my old Intel core i7 machine, also have insider on machine, when support will be added a will switch to Ryzen afterwards :)
Thank you Bruce. This is exactly the kind of comment we were expecting. Just knowing this is actually a living topic is a reason to cheer. And as a bonus, the "stay tuned" thing is kind of a nice clue.
Moving on to AMD in 3,2,1...

WSL 2 is being released officially, and there are a bunch of devs that have use-cases that expect KVM to just work. It isn't just big-iron server scenarios anymore; VMs have gone mainstream for both 10X and WSL. Thanks Bruce for the feedback it is super appreciated. ❤️
Couldn't install the Windows 10X emulator because of this limitation. Huge bummer.
Today's Windows 10X emulator release dev notes says the following, "AMD processors are not supported at this time. Nested virtualization is required to run Windows 10X in the emulator and Windows does not yet support this on AMD processors. Stay tuned!"
I suspect this is why Bruce just popped up on the comment below this one. At least it seems it'll be this year?
Hello Hyper-V fans! I was recently alerted to your feedback on this topic and I hear your request loud and clear! I run the engineering team that is responsible for the Hyper-V hypervisor. I cannot commit to a specific Windows release that will support nested virtualization on an AMD CPU at the moment, but I recommend monitoring Windows insider builds for previews of this support as we push the changes into the hypervisor this year.

A significant deployment is awaiting this feature. Microsoft, please make this a thing.
Gutted to realise that this is still a thing. Come on MS - this limitation is out of time. Thank you.
