I have need to stand up an ESXi nested VM for running a Singlewire Informacast VM that refuses to run on AHV natively. Following some blogs/guides, I’ve manually created a NIC with the e1000 model and it seems to work fine under ESXi 6.7 but the ESXi 7.0 installer won’t recognize the NIC. From what I’ve seen online, the e1000 driver might not be supported on ESXi 7.0 anymore.
In any case, I wanted to see if anyone else has had any luck getting ESXi 7.0 working as a nested VM on AHV. Thanks.
