    As I understand it, you can do one or the other as HyperV basically virtualises the WIn8 OS as part of the process
    The simplest way is to duplicate the boot configuration and set (IIRC) HypervisorLaunchType to OFF ( for more info) and then install VMWare once you have booted into the non-hyperV environnment

      No. You can't have Hyper-V and VMware on the same system at the same time. In fact the VMware install will complain.
