Nano server nested VM will not start with VHDX generation 1

Is it a bug or is it by design? Maybe I do something wrong… Please let me know I will update the blog 🙂
I did the tests with nested VM’s!

Ok than… I was testing some basis things with creating Nano server images. After creating the image with a VHDX file I created a new VM:

 

Everything looks fine until you try to do some remote PowerShell… Every time I was getting errors that PowerShell remote has issues. So I connected to my newly created VM, and saw the following error:

I turns out that if you create a VHDX image you must specify the generation switch and set it to 2! I even tried the boot device switch and pointed it to VHD of IDE. That didn’t work either. The only option was a generation 2 VM… Let me show you:
