I'm having some trouble here to run Windows 10 or Windows 7 in nested virtualization.
My setup is to run Xen on top of KVM.
I configured my Xen VM to have 8G of RAM.
When the system is booted, I have 4G of RAM free to use:
sudo xl info:
total_memory : 8191
free_memory : 4132
I configured Windows 10 to have 4G and then reduced to 2G of RAM, but I still get the same BSOD:
"This bug check indicates that the hardware abstraction layer (HAL) could not obtain sufficient memory."
How is this possible ??
Windows 7 is crashing as well, but there is no specific message on the BSOD.
Even though I guess it's the same issue.
Also, Windows XP is booting without problems.
Anyone has an idea on what could be the root cause of this ?
I dont know the arcanes of memory management in nested virtualized environment.
