        Nov 2018 and AMD nested virtualisation is still not opened up in Windows 10/2016. Please add this Microsoft.

        this is insane. c'mon MS, stop taking bribes from intel
        I need nested on my Threadripper host, with one VM running Visual Studio

        My plans for testing of nested VMs with much better value AMD processors is killed by the lack of support for nested Hyper V AMD processors.

        I hope they prioritize this. By the time Zen 2 rolls around, AMD's processors will be even better.

        We really really need this, would prefer Hyper-V to VMware or Xen, but have to go with what actually works. Not going back to inferior Intel.

        It should be cheap and correspond to AMDCPU with many cores.
        I believe in Microsoft.

        I'm now going to have to purchase a very expensive Intel machine because of this. It will be more expensive than the more powerful AMD alternative that I would have preferred.

        how ling we need to wait ? buying intel processor because of this feature is just not smart

        Nested Virtualization for for whole AMD-V is needed urgently. MS could earn so munch more $Cash selling Server Licences for existing AMD Computing Centers

        Considering AMD has better chips than Intel for power users where high thread count is important (ie virtualization) and will for the next few years at least, this is unbelievable that MS has not prioritized this.
