You can natively create virtual machines in Windows 10

Windows 10 Virtual Machine

What we could call as the different dreams in which the character embodied by Leonardo DiCaprio in Inception is found, or here known as Origin, Windows 10 will natively offer what virtual machines are for replicate a Windows 10 on another Windows 10.

Since the last Windows 10 Insider Preview, support for the creation of virtual machines inside another virtual machine, which can allow launching Windows within Windows itself.

This is due to a new feature that supports hardware virtualization through a primary virtual machine, providing an extra layer. There are limits in this capacity as it would be dynamic memory that does not work, and what would be the requirement to have a processor with VT-x support. Although whoever has a chip from years past will surely be able to access this virtual machine.

So the new Hyper-V containers allow virtualization of only other Hyper-Vs, which means the activation of Windows 10 virtualization in Windows 10. A capacity that could be used in order to have to save the step to perform a dualboot so that you can choose the operating system you want when the computer starts.

So this capacity that comes from the new Insider Preview It will allow us to save some good steps to create a virtual machine in which we can launch a Windows 10 within another Windows 10 and so on as far as we want, as if they were mirrors of themselves.

As I have mentioned, this ability is inscribed in those who have a processor that support VT-X and AMD-V. This can be achieved by activating it from the motherboard BIOS, so it would be convenient to access the support website to see if this functionality can be activated. A functionality intended for advanced users and that goes a bit beyond what a normal one can use in Windows 10.
