    Did it ever worked that way?

    Why running a VM in a VM? I believe it's a test.
    You'll lose considerable performance that way and there's more chance for the machine to crash.

    Running Hyper-V in a Windows host is the only way to get best results.

    Try upgrading or running from Parallells build 9.0.24217 or otherwise run Hyper-V from bootcamp install.

    It is indeed a test. I'm an IT apprentice trying to learn about SBS. I will try running from Parallels itself. Thank you.
