Why are you trying to do this? – ewwhite Dec 24 '11 at 12:43
why not? I have one PC and since i have Server 2008 installed i thought that it's better to install in Hyper-V than over vmware player/workstation – Remus Rigo Dec 24 '11 at 13:05
Are you trying to run hypervisor as vm?This would defeat whole point of virtualization. – Sergei Dec 24 '11 at 13:11
I've never tried it but you can run esxi inside esxi - in case you were interested. – Chopper3 Dec 24 '11 at 13:11
Why test a configuration that no-one in their right mind would ever do anything productive with? – growse Dec 24 '11 at 14:13

No, neither ESXi or Hyper-V will run as a guest of the other (versions available as of writing this).
