Hyper-V: Run VMWare Workstation under Windows Sever 2008 without bluescreen

Due to the fact, in the current Intel/AMD chip architecture, only one hardware-based hypervisor can run at a time, you will want to create a special boot entry for a Hyper-V-less boot time configuration of Windows 2008. Assuming you are currently booted into Windows 2008, at an administrative command prompt, type the following:


bcdedit /copy {current} /d “Windows 2008 (No Hyper-V)”

The above command should say: The entry was successfully copied to {guid}.

Copy that {guid} to the clipboard including the curly braces.

Now, type the following command:

bcdedit /set {guid} hypervisorlaunchtype off

In the above command, replace {guid} with what you into the clipboard.

Boot into the ‘Windows 2008 (No Hyper-V)’ instance and you will no longer bluescreen while running VMWare guests.
