That appears to require a CPU that supports SLAT. I tried that on my Win10 install and it complained that the CPU did not support that. The CPU is an E8500.

I am not using Win8, other than on an 8" tablet and I don't know that I want to run VMs on that. But I am guessing that it should work on Win10 TP which I have installed.

How many VMs can you run on one machine? I guess it is memory dependent but it is reasonable to be able to run 4 VMs in an 8GB PC with 2GB each of memory?
