    Re: vmware workstation settings

    just so I understand correctly:

    You have an ESXi 5.0 Host.
    you have installed a 2008R2 Guest.
    Within that 2008R2 Guest, you have installed VMware Workstation
    Within Vmware workstation, you're trying to install Xen Server

    ?

    Has the first google result for your error message told you anything?
    Please do show your appreciation to those who assist you by leaving Rep Point https://www.petri.com/forums/core/im.../icon_beer.gif

          What exactly is confusing you???

          The user is trying to install a hypervisor inside VMware Workstation.

            Well it sounds like it using ESXi where a windows guest is installed. Within that windows guest she installed vmware workstation and within a vmware workstation a XenServer environment.

              Exactly.

              The link i provided should help the OP achieve this. Why they want to do this though is another matter.
