Installing Hyper-V on ESXi

Validation Results: The validation process found problems on the server to which you want to install features. 
The selected features are not compatible with the current configuration of your selected 
server. Click OK to select different features.

Shutdown the VM.
Add vhv.allow = "TRUE" to vmx file of VM. 
Amend guest operating system string so it looks like - guestOS = "winhyperv"
Upgrade Virtual Hardware. 
Enable Intel VT-x/AMD-V for intrusion set virtualization in VM CPU Options.

Notes: Works with ESXi 5.1, ESXi can be installed as well, Hyper-V can be installed and run even with 1 vCPU.
