Nested virtualization bricks Windows guests

Proxmox 8

Following the wiki documentation here: ``

This should work, based on the note here: `Note: Microsoft Hyper-V as a nested Hypervisor on AMD CPUs should work with Proxmox VE 7.`

Unfortunately, after installing Windows `Virtual Machine Platform` and other prerequisites for Windows Subsystem for Linux, the system becomes no longer bootable, failing shortly after UEFI hand-off.

Anyone else have similar experience with this?
