Will hyper v run in a VirtualBox vm guest?

I have this running on a ubuntu 904 x64 system running virtualbox. Installed hyperv standalone vm guest fine. Installed window 2008 vm guest fine but could not enable hyper v. The video show what happened when i tried to connect to the stand alone hyperv vm guest using hyper v manager.

HyperV in VirtualBox does not work from Antone Heyward.

    Found this one!

    DNS does not work some how? (Security?)
    Enter Hyper-V-IP-adres and Hyper-V-ServerName in your hosts file.

    Add your user account as a workgroup user.
    You will have to give a password twice (creating a local user on Hyper-V-Server)

    It worked for me using Virtualbox under Windows 7!

    Remote HYPER V MANAGER / HYPER V MMC Error ” Cannot connect to the RPC service on computer ‘‚Äô. Make sure your RPC service is running”
    Yes i too had the same RPC issue, when both Hyper-v-server and hyper-v manager was on the same domain, there is no issues at all but once the hyper-v server and client brought to the workgroup environment the issue starts, one of the solution is to edit your hosts file which is under C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

    add the following entry


    This would simply sort the issue.

    Good luck

    I have Windows 7 64 machine and have installed VirtualBox on it.

    I have enabled all the virtualization options in BIOS.

    I have created Hyper-V virtual machine and installed Stand-Alone version successfully.

    I have installed Remote Server Administration Tools for Windows 7.

    My Hyper-V guest and Windows 7 host communicate with each other as well,

    thus I have successfully created Windows XP virtual machine on Hyper-V


    When I try to start this WinXP virtual machine through Hyper-V Manager I get error:

    The virtual machine could not be started because the hypervisor is not running

    any ideas, how to fix this problem ?

    Thanks in advance, Nrupesh
