Nested virtualization for AMD Epyc and Ryzen
Please support nested virtualization on AMD Epyc and Ryzen processors.
Hyper-V nested virtualization on AMD Cpu is very important. Inexpensive CPUs and good performance

Wether by accident or on purpose Microsoft is creating an anti-competitive environment by not supporting nested virtualization on both Intel and AMD hardware. We should not have to up-vote this, get your act together Microsoft.

I'm a software engineer and really need this functionality to be able to run a different kind of emulators inside the development environment in guest VM.
Also, virtualbox supports nested VMS "exclusively" on AMD chips.. in windows. Release notes indicate that it can also use Hyper-V as the hypervisor. Unsure if that's a potential workaround until MS resolves the issue but it's certainly worth a try.
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.
*** Please enable nested Virtualization *** AMD &VMware & Windows ***
Being such a mature company why such kind of barriers .
CPU : AMD Ryzen 2700x
MotherBoard: AX370 Gaming K3 (Latest BIOS Flashed)
RAM : 16GB DDR4 Adata
Power supply : Corsair 650 Watt
Hard Drive : 240GB Sata & 1TB WD
Workstation : Window 10 OS.
Please add this feature
Just got a Threadripper system for my evaluation needs.
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.
agree. add this.

MS please. Don't leave your AMD users hanging. We need nested virtualization!
Marek Marcinowski commented
Support for that on AMD is a must...

Please add support for Ryzen
we need this feature to study mcsa
@MS: Pls. provide a statement on this. Nested virtualization support on EPYC (at least) is a must!
We need this MS, please =)
Now I look stupid for recommending Windows and AMD because of this.
