Nest proxmox inside proxmox

I realize that this is niche, but here I am.]

I want to teach some people how to use proxmox and for that a brand new proxmox instance would be ideal. It turns out that the easiest way to do that for me would be to run proxmox inside a VM inside my usual proxmox instance.

However, proxmox complainst that no support for hardware-accelerated KVM is detected. I ran `cat /sys/module/kvm_intel/parameters/nested` as suggested by some nested proxmox google results but it seems to already be enabled.

What I'm doing is not possible or am I missing something? Running proxmox 8.0.2 on proxmox 8.0.2 in case it matters, on a fairly recent 12th gen intel nuc.
you need to set the host CPU type in the VM's Hardware tab for this to work.
