Hyper-v Can't be installed on windows 2016

saifduaa96 asked:

I’m using google cloud platform, and want to install hyper v on windows 2016 vm but i keep getting this message :hyper v cannot be installed : the processor doesn’t have required virtualization capabilities.
what can i do ?

My answer:

As the documentation states, Google Cloud only supports KVM-based (nested) virtualization.

Nested virtualization is supported only for KVM-based hypervisors running on Linux instances. Hyper-V, ESX, and Xen hypervisors are not supported.

And by not supported it is meant that it simply does not work and cannot be made to work.
