Can I install Windows 11 inside Windows 11 Hyper-V ?
I have been trying to install windows 11 using Hyper-V in Windows 11 but I have not managed to do so.
I have tried to install using Generation 2 but still no luck.
I have activated the Secure Boot and TPM option in generation 2 but still doesn't work.

I even have installed and reinstalled windows 10 pro 3 times and home edition one time and they all worked.

My question is?
Is it possible to install windows 11 using Hyper-V windows 11?

Yes it possible but there is a little known trick you have to do. Windows 11 only accepts dual core+ CPUs, so you have to make sure you have selected two processor cores in the Hyper-V settings (as a minimum), or else you get a message to say you do not meet minimum requirements.
