I have a Virtual Dedicated Server (VDS) but cannot create virtual machines with Hyper-V. What can I do?

Virtual Dedicated Servers have its own dedicated hardware resources and support nested virtualization, so you can install your own virtual machines on VDS. This is true for VDS with both Linux and Windows operating systems. On VDS with Windows as operating system there is a common issue with Hyper-V, which prevents the creation and usage of virtual machines. This is known to Microsoft already, but a Microsoft fix most likely will take very long; too long to wait for. As an alternative, we have figured out Oracle VirtualBox as virtualization software, which we have tested and confirmed working. If that does not help or you still need advice, contact us and tell us about.
