Can we run Windows 10 on a VMWare VM?

my company would like to use Windows on a VMWare Vm. The host is a VMWAre server and we don't care which Windows version we use except that the VM will be configured with 2 CPU and 1 TB of disk and single user. 

I hear tell that Windows 10 USB would work but has anyone actually had experience doinf this pleasE?

thanks heaps

You certainly can install and run Windows 10 as a guest in VMWare, but you'll need to buy a license to activate it.

Hi Norman, thanks for your question. I'm Graeme, a fellow Microsoft user.

You can run Windows 10 on a VMWare installation. Here's a link to the VMWare product page that states that it's compatible with Windows 10:

Here's an article that might help you get the virtual machine up and running:

Please let me know if you need further support! Thanks!

Hi,

the first link is how to install VMWare fusion. We don't need that as we've got a whacking great VMWare server.

The second link is how to install VMWare on Windows 10. We don't need that either.

thanks but the links weren't any help :(

no worries

Yes - that's where I installed my Insiders build. W10 installed and ran fine but I didn't buy a license for it.

That's it. A virtual machine works just like a physical computer.
