To enable Nested Ventilation on the Hyper-V host (server 2016 RTM or Windows 10 1607) run the two cmdlets below:

Before you run them:

  1. Shut down the VM
  2. Change the VM name to match your VM In the cmdlet below.
  3. Give the VM enough memory ( I recommend minimum 2GB)
Set-VMProcessor -VMName 2016rtm -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true
Get-VMNetworkAdapter -VMName 2016rtm | Set-VMNetworkAdapter -MacAddressSpoofing On

Once done, Start the VM and Install Hyper-V using the two cmdlets below:
